Hey Lumberjocks, it's been a while. Thought I would show off this table I made. The top is bookmatched spalted maple and the base and legs are walnut with mortise and tenon joints (cut with a combination of hand and power tools).
In 2003 one of my best friends and partner in my tattoo/piercing shop passed away unexpectedly. With his passing I closed my shop and moved out of the area. He was cremated and little did I know his remains were kept in a stainless steel container he used at his tattoo booth. A little over a year ago his widow asked me if I would be willing to make a urn for his ashes and asked me what it would cost. Cost? Nothing was my reply. It took me a while to make this as it had to be very special. I finally came up with this urn and his widow received it the day before, what would have been his 72nd birthday. RIP Brother! P.S. my apologies for the lousy background.
This was good practice cutting dovetails and fitting drawers. I had been keeping odds and ends under my bench in a cardboard box that was half-full of shavings, so I think this is a pretty good upgrade.I still haven't gotten half-blind dovetails that are good enough to put on something nice, but I feel like I improved a little with this project. Im going to find one or two more shop boxes to build with them before I try them on something for the house.
