Just finished console table…live edge cottonwood top with sapelle base. All dowel joinery done with new Jessum dowel jig – which was great to use. Did use figure 8's to attach top slab to base. Never worked with Cottonwood before…very light weight and prone to fuzz. Used sanding sealer and was able to get a perfect surface to finish. Top was finished with several coats of lacquer. Top had a few knots that also needed epoxy. Base finished with danish oil. Too bad it's behind a couch as the sapelle grain really shines…pictures do not do it justice. Thanks for looking.
A quick weekend project to get my clamps more organized. Nothing pretty, just some functional shop storage made from plywood cut-off's.The space where I store my clamps is a bit small and I had to fit everything between a door and my tool cabinet, allowing for the swing of the doors on both side. I was able to get most of my clamps onto this new rack, but I still have about 20 on another rack that just won't fit.
It's been a while since I posted a project so I thought it was overdue to share some project pictures of a few bowls I have finished.The cherry bowl has been finished for a couple years and is starting to darken beautifully as cherry does.Two of the bowls are spalted curly maple and just recently finished.All three were finished with Tried and True Danish oil then buffed with the beall buffing wheels.
