Pen #42

Pen #42Unknown woods. When I began with the blank, it was an experiment to see if I could get away with making a 70 degree cut. It worked. A little less show-offy than the previous two, I admit. But, I like it. It's a Slimline. The hardest part, really (aside from the bending over the table saw), was deciding which end would be the top and which the bottom. I think I chose wisely.Thank you. And, I apologize.

Floating top entry table

Floating top entry tableThis entry/hall table is one of my favorite projects. It has a 5/4 live edge walnut top and skirt and the legs are 8/4 walnut. I wasn't sure about the leg design until I got it together and decided it worked really well. Sanded to 320 and finished with 4 coats of Arm-R-Seal.

Duct Collector

Duct CollectorWhen I started woodworking 5 years ago, in the basement of our old house, I knew dust collection was a must have. So I made a traffic cone cyclone. While building it I thought, I'll just buy a shop vac for the suction side, until I stumbled over my leaf blower. Built a filter box with the leaf blower held on top with plumbers strapping for easy removal the once a year I need to use it for its intended purpose. In the new shop I installed 2 1/2” piping with blast gates and a remote starter. It was a temporary solution but it is working better than expected so I have no immediate plans to change it.

Staked Chair. Made this chair from African mahogany with laminated red oak for the crest. I used the Anarchist Design book for the plans, but decided to saddle the seat for a little comfort. The finish is red milk paint and oil.Not sure why the pictures are sideways or how to fix them!
