a small walnut bench to cover a drain pipe in a bathroom reno. i just completed. It is fastened to the wall with a L shaped ledger so it can be removed for dusting
i went for a beautiful walk at the Pinery on Father's Day. This Carolinian Forest is rare in Canada. Giant oak and tulip trees reaching to the sky
When I first started woodworking over 30 years ago I had visions of a hardwood bench with a face and tail vise all smooth and level, glorious. Funny how things change and you find out that the way your doing it is just the way it should be done. For instance in the above set up I needed to bevel a panel for a box bottom. I used two scraps, cut a wedge on the band saw, five roof'in nails, my little smoother and way we go. set up time was 4 minutes and the work was quiet not machine crazy loud
another side table finished. this one is walnut base and cherry top. these table leg take a lot of time to shape the legs but i love the look
another open side table completed and ready to send to the customer. thins one has a cherry top with walnut base
I love this material ever since i took these pics a few months ago. Canadian soap stone has a beautiful grain pattern and it is very durable and of course stone cold. I have been thinking of an alternate coffee table top material and got a quote on it today. It's not too pricey - let me know if you would like a quote anyone.
the top freshly glued up. Using my grandpa's old bar clamps. The plank was quite wide and there will be sapwood just showing on the outside of the table. the joint is hand planed so the fit is very fine
Here is the table partially assembled. At this point we're looking for fit up issues. Glue up is always a stress time so it's best to make sure everything ready
Parsley on Bubinga. I crave green this time of year so I buy parsley and put it in a vase. It's inexpensive and tasty and last a long time if you keep it watered.
