Writing Table

Furnished content.

Writing TableThe wife said I need a small writing table for my office. I would like it ASAP. I said OK, and started planing some Oak I bought 2 years ago. The table took me all day Saturday and part of the day Sunday. I was pretty much done and she came out and Said, EW – I need those knot holes filled in Dear. So I bought some Epoxy and and watched a few videos. Taped the back of the already completed and finished table. Turned it over and re-sanded the top. Poured in the Epoxy and hoped for the best, It ran out onto the driveway, down the legs and so forth. So I let all of that dry. Re-taped the back better a few days later. It turned out pretty good but still had a place or two that the epoxy sunk or a big bubble was. So I sanded it down some and poured another batch. Now it is Saturday the next weekend. Top is sanded, legs re-sanded and everything finished off again, Table is in her office and she wants to wait a few days to let it cure before she starts using it. She says she loves it and that is what matters. In the mean time I have a mantle still needing a back board and the Grand son is over and we are making an organizer for his Games. I love life in the shop.

"E" Bandsaw Box

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


"E" Bandsaw BoxI made this band saw box for my grand daughter. Her name is Ellie, hence the “E”. It challenged me at every turn, and I almost gave up a few times, but here it is. It is purple heart, walnut, and maple, 3 coats of wipe on poly (great product). I did not want any pulls on the purple heart surface so I made dowel push holes on the rear of the box, works quite well, and unclutters the fronts. I almost gave up on this project a few times but reminded myself for the millionth time to not quit and finish what you start. Oh, and if you have problems sanding inside the drawer cavities, flocking works great there also. Thanks everyone.
