Matt’s Weekly Shop Update – Jan 24, 2016

This past week I was able to get some time in to work on the mill.  I got the lift motor mounted and the controls hooked up. In the shop, I continued applying finish to the benches and installed some lighting.

Cedar Bench by Ben

Here is a bench I made with the Pantorouter a couple months ago. It was more of an experiment with the box joint template but it turned out ok so I figured I’d share it with you. The bench was made from some off cuts from some big cedar barn doors I did earlier this year. I finished the wood with watco teak oil. I really like how it looks on cedar.

Dining Table by Ethan

I recently completed my maple and walnut dining table with matching benches. I’m 17 years old and built this set at school in shop class.

Porch Swing by Kristopher

A porch swing that I made in mission style. It’s made from pine, and it was a great project for me to practice tennon making for joinery. It’s a gift for my wife’s aunt and uncle, and they are painting it periwinkle purple.

Live Edge Table by Zach

I am a 16 year old woodworker from NJ. This is the second large commission piece that I have ever built. The top is made from a crazy piece of live edge walnut that I milled from a really burly tree. The legs are all joined with mortise and tenon joints, and the drawer is hard maple.
