  1. great contrast. overall a great idea. but next time try a tighter grained wood it might look a little better
  2. I was offered a 2/4 thick slab of the wood you would get from any apple tree that grows in Texas my only issue is if it's worth it to work with. Iv never seen anything made out of an apple tree do you think I should go pick it up and make something or avoid it
  3. I will find a million things wrong before I find something right. So because of that I have almost no mistakes on the second project my only mistake is not doing a mock up out of scrap people say I do amazing work for my age 17years old and I'm the head student in welding and woodworking shop so I am good but not even close to a craftsmen. I have a test for any one who is willing, clamp a 4*4 into a bench vise and draw a perfectly square line every 1 inch for 2-3 feet you will go from bad to ok to almost perfect but you must remember let the saw do the work ( Learned this from my mentor it works)
  4. My problem is finding a good set of plans or finding someone who will look them over I might post them in the scetch up library if I have time so if any can help at that point i would greatly thank you
  5. I cheeked fine lumber it just the prices are steep compared to online I just don't have a way to order online no debit or credit card I do cash hate banks they suck woodfinder helped a little
  6. Thanks for the advice I know now to not lessen to that person
  7. Correction right after this post was up I called a person who owns a decking company and he said for 40 bucks plus plus the price of lumber he can ship it to me it's all4/4 and 4th 10 foot boards I don't have the count yet but think it's going to be enough I want to do it all in solid walnut to last forever. And I live in Austin tx
  8. I want Ronald a desk out of solid walnut so that I can have it for many years but I can't find any walnut so my question is should I use fine grade plywood with a walnut or other dark vineer I really don't gong plywood in furniture a good investment cause the return value is far less than solid wood. If anyone has plans for a nice desk that is flat on top and has drawers on the right side and is a little more open on the left please send them to me I'm still looking it's been 2 months and iv found nothing cause I'm so picky and I hate the Internet mostly yahoo search and google search
  9. I was told by a woodworker today that if you spay a fine mist on a single board shelf that is about 26" in lenth 9" in with and 3/4 " thick and let it sit for an hour and do the same to bothsides then put poly on. Then it will help retain it's shape cause it will not dry as fast and not gain a lot of moisture between coats. This conserns me greatly isn't the goal to keep moisture at a normal level not at an elivared level while applying poly just asking
  10. Yes you are most glues and epoxys will stain hard woods and leave black or sometimes a brownish green colar I would know iv screwed up great projects by glue squeeze out on hard woods and I could not shave or plane it off before anyone askes
  11. I get out of school at 3:45 so I could not make it
  12. I would vote to get rid of some of the new magz I'm tired of all the adds I see the same ones over and over and I read a lot of magz so I could quote most of the adds. In a way the woodwhisperer is my new favorite mag/ book/ info source. And probably will be for a long time. Keep it up Marc and marc's team. Woot woot woot
  13. I'm looking for 4/4 spalted or regular walnut for a desk. I was wondering were in central tx to go or a web site to go to I need it as cheap as possible I know it's not cheap but I still need it soon
