  1. Not sure which backrest is the best, both are quite incredible!
  2. the grain on that bubinga is absolutely gorgeous! I can't wait to see those take shape!
  3. Pretty sure it's to help @bushwacked to grip it when he'll try to lift it! Other guess would be a T Track...
  4. makes sense! I really enjoy following along!
  5. until Ray spoke I thought it was some sort of montage! now for a (probably) stupid question, why not route the groove for the T-Track before the glue up?
  6. yeah I didn't think to pack up the camera and lenses when I left for work as I didn't expect to stop by on the way back, looking at those on the computer makes them look even worse, sorry about that
  7. It doesn't look like a veneer to me from these shoddy pictures. Turns out it isn't quite obvious to take the side of an extension. There is a tiny chamfer which obviously didn't help Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk
  8. I'll try to get over there this weekend to snap some pictures of the ends. Hopefully that makes it obvious whether or not it is indeed veneered
  9. thanks Dave, That is entirely possible that it is indeed maple, I'm quite new at this and I was trying to go with what was remembered from when it was made. I didn't think that the top was veneered, I'll try to go take some pictures of the sides of the extension/top when the 2 sides meet. that should make it obvious if it's a veneered top correct? new finish for sure as the current one has a couple spots with issues like in the second to last picture. I guess changing the colour would be dependant on whether or not this is a veneered top as well as which wood that actually is. Simon
  10. Hi, I am a table and I need to identify what it was made of, mostly to decide on options as it needs to be refinished. from memory it might be Cherry (Merisier) but I'm not sure. I forgot to take any top pictures but it was either painted or stained (I don't know if this makes much of a difference as to what can be done as far as new finish) thanks! Simon so here are some pics of the unfinished underside Actually come to think of it I have 9lder pictures of the top from a couple years ago...
  11. Wasn't it for a vac and lights though? Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk
  12. What's on order from Festool? I love how one of the featured products in the LV email blast about last day of free shipping is a toast holder or something! Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk
  13. It's really a cool project! That's really awesome that he is interested and that he is doing it Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk
  14. I thought it was funny that out of the cards that's the one you posted, but that's the one from the square right? Yeah that would indeed be Mechanical Engineering. I wouldn't have guessed that high, especially If he wanted only 500 for the lot. Really nice score then!
  15. Nice haul there Shane! funny that that the inspector has a French name! was he studying to be a machinist perhaps?
