Matt’s Weekly Shop Update – June 20, 2018

Back to work on the sawmill. I’m finishing up reassembling things that were removed last summer when I took the mill apart to finish painting it.

Viewer Projects

Rosary Box by Kenny

I built a small keepsake box for a rosary I call it sacred heart

Table by Aaron

I would like to show you this table I built from red oak, for my first client.  The  table was built with dowels and half lap joints, some hardware for stability.

Fireplace Facelift by Mark

I replaced our old gas fireplace with a smaller unit and covered the column with a random stacked wood design.  I used leftovers from the last 20+ years.  I counted 16 species, but it’s primarily cherry, maple, white oak, poplar, walnut and sapele.  There’s purpleheart, bloodwood, yellowheart and sycamore mixed in, too.  The pieces are 1/4″ and 1/2″ thick, and I used thin shims to give more/less depth when needed.  I also cut returns on the corners to hide the end grain and give illusion of having thicker pieces.

Side Table by Jack

As most of the viewer projects seems to be from North America, here are something different in style and origin. A side table made in Denmark from European White Birch. The table has a soap finish which are commonly used in Denmark. The table top is plywood with a blue linoleum.
I made the table as a gift for my wife and it is my second attempt on making a piece of furniture.
