Matt’s Weekly Shop Update – Aug 23, 2016

This week I kept working on the sawmill by completing the track frame.  We also had some dryer weather so I was able to complete the assembly of the base and start applying finish to it.

I’ll be at IWF this week on Friday and Saturday (Aug 26th and 27th):

Oak Table by Guillaume

It is a solid oak table with a stone blade incorporated in. The drawers are made with dovetails. The stone is a Spanish pulpis.

Step Stool by Brian

I made a step stool to replace the plastic one that my 2 year-old daughter has been using. This is much sturdier, and the best part is that she proudly proclaims that “Daddy built it!”.

This is my 5th attempt at a vase. Walnut and maple. Mr. Toth gave me the “how to” when I visited his shop back in March. Vase number 6 also pictured.


Table by Josh

I built a table as a surprise father’s day gift for a fried of mine. I thought it turned out great so I wanted to share it with everyone. I built this table out of 8/4 hard maple. For the inlays I used yellow heart and walnut. I wanted to use cherry for the red but I messed up the inlay process so I went with a stain instead. I used black piping for the base because it matched the decor of the room it was going in.
