Mom's kitchen table

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Mom's kitchen tableSo my mom recently sold her house and bought a new place and as she is digging out of 40 old years worth of stuff, she comes across this old kitchen table and she asks me to refinish it for her. The table is around 60-65 years old, as near as any of us know, and it was covered over is layers of old, flat white paint. I cleaned it up and stripped the table top and found this beautiful old hardwood underneath. I didn't have the heart to cover it back up with paint. A little sanding and stain and poly and it came out looking pretty good, I think. Mom loved it.

Going Away Gift - Walnut and Epoxy

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Going Away Gift - Walnut and EpoxyI recently made this going away gift for a co-worker-she and I had worked together (on a daily basis) for 4 years.Most of these details are the same as other boxes I have made over the years. I was able to wrap the walnut grain around all 4 corners using this jig that I made years ago; box joint jigThere were a few voids in the walnut lid that I filled with matching epoxy from her name. For the splines on the lid, I used inverted pieces of scrap maple flooring that still had the “haunch” profile in it – that created a void to add some more epoxy for a slight detail.The state of Michigan inlay is maple burl & the veneer maple top was something I picked up on e-bay years ago.She is a big Chris Farley fan so that was my inspiration for the underlid character and phrase.Bottom is made from aromatic cedar which she will get the scent from every time the lid is opened.Finished with GF seal-a-sell & multiple coats of GF arm-r-seal.Thanks for looking.Bill in MI
