  1. Just look in the mirror Coop, there’s a great woodworker looking back at you
  2. Very nice Drew, and i like the shine on the truck!
  3. Way cool Chet something he will treasure forever, great combination of wood and that handle is just right, well done sir!
  4. $150.00 at the church auction Sunday. Not too bad I think for a silent auction
  5. Well done Drew, you can’t go wrong with cherry and the ash top will look great on there, care to share what the odd one is going to be or are you going to make us wait, at the speed you make things it won’t be much of a wait
  6. I’ve used Watco cherry on cherry wood to darken it to match a piece for a client, wait till it’s cured to dry before any top coat
  7. I have a few templates around John for some of the more complicated things I make, some MDF some Baltic birch, I also have a notebook that I use to note particular measurements, procedures or assembly sequences on the things that I build more than one of but don’t build often enough to remember how things go together

    Texas mesquite

    Wow Mick everything is just beautiful, love the cabinets. Is there any mesquite left in Texas of did you turn it all into beautiful woodwork ?
  9. Thanks Tom and you’re right having never tried fuming I was a little apprehensive but the result is impressive. I wish I could take better pictures they are better in person, it’s been quite a ride for me
  10. Thanks Coop, I kind of freaked out when I started laying on the garnet shellac, it appeared very light colored on the wood, but that quickly changer to that nice warm color, I don’t know if that’s normal or not, I know I will be mixing my own shellac from now on, very nice to apply, and I see why you like to spray it
  11. In the pictures one looks a little darker than the other, it’s mostly the light in the shop but one is slightly darker, and I found a couple of small spots I missed with the shellac but that can be dealt with easy enough I think, just thought I would throw in this shot of them together
  12. In the tent with ammonia for about 6 hours and the resultsvery pleased with the results, turned a nice dark khaki color, the test piece in the middle is the garnet shellac I mixed with one coat of satin ARS
  13.

  14. It’s better to have wood in times of no money than money in times of no wood, I don’t see a problem except that maybe you need to build a large dedicated wood shed to store it all in one place, just make it big enough
  15. i don't think sapele would be to dark Cliff, especially if you're planing on lights in every shelf
