My first solo project : a wooden bar (ash olive tree) !


Recommended Posts

Greetings, Paul! I moved your post to the video project showcase sub-forum, as that seemed more appropriate. 

You say this is your first solo project, yet the video is obviously shot in a commercial workshop. Are you employed there, or were you allowed to use the facility as an 'outsider'?

I have never heard of 'ash olive'. Is that a European or Asian species, or did you mean a combination of ash and olive woods?

Why is that concerning?

When you say it’s my first build and have commercial equipment, it’s fishy..

 

it could be someone else’s shop. He just isn’t clear on his “ first solo build”

 

There is nothing wrong with asking for info on a user..

Thank you ! i'll put my post in the right section in the future :)

I'm an apprentice, this is my boss's shop he lets me work there ! And ash olive is a variety of regular ash the only difference is that its heart is brown, this is a european type of wood i guess ( i'm from the middle of france) :D

It did not take much time to find the word apprentice in the linked account. Yes, beginners can come through well equipped shops.

@le bolay furniture, it looks like well done piece, sir.  You are rightfully proud, and I hope your boss took notice.  Welcome to the forum, we're looking forward to your future comments, questions and creations. :)

Thank you very much Mark i means a lot to me, my boss took notice and was very happy (tho i asked him to grade it and he gave me a 12/20) he saw all the process and the mistakes i made, plus on the pic or the video we dont see the little finishing problems, but i'm all right with this grade i agree with it actually, it gives me plenty room to get better :D will surely post my next projects and questions in here thanks! :D
