A "rounded" edge looks more crisp to me than when you have the 2 separate edges of a chamfer. I also thing they feel better.

I agree, but with some pieces, a very slight chamfer with the edge being a distinct 45* can be very effective. Of course, those edges need to be softened just a bit as well for reasons of wear, comfort, and getting the finish to want to cover the edge.

320 by hand on that edge?  Sure looks like a damn good result.  Can't wait to see the finished product.

  1. Cody does the cutting. :ph34r:
  2. After 15 years, they finally drop enough needles to subdue the grass below, so actual cutting is greatly reduced!

That is the reason I hang out here - I've learned more from you guys, than I can ever pay back.

Really fantastic job Ross. That’s going to be hard to part with I’m sure. I like the contrast between the two top layers. And you were considerate enough to wax the holes to keep from waking the customer at night! :) Thanks for the ride.

Let's say, maybe......zero.

Thought your customer wanted multiples?

I think I mentioned liking the design, and wanting one for my deck. That's another thing entirely. If I can ever make it back up to @Spanky's place for some black locust, maybe it will happen.
