Matt’s Weekly Shop Update – March 19, 2017

The slab work on the waterfall table is all done.  I trimmed the leg to final size and applied finish.  The last bit of this table will be a trapezoidal base.

Kumiko Topped Boxes by Matt

I have made two box tops for Christmas gifts.  Both have a cherry kumiko top over a koa bottom and both boxes are made from walnut.  If you look closely you can see a couple of walnut shells within the bark inclusion.

Sculpted Rockers by Drew

I just completed a couple spalted maple and purpleheart sculpted rockers inspired by Sam Maloof / Hal Taylor / and Canadian woodworks!  Thanks to one of your videos I tried out the CPES to help strengthen areas of concern.

Waterfall End Table by Zach

This project is somewhat basic but I think this butternut shows a ton of natural​​ character and it was my first waterfall project so it was pretty exciting for me.
 After I made my cuts at the desired height
-I used the Festool Domino to the joint together using tightbondIII glue.
-Used a wire wheel on the drill to match the edges up
-Filled the voids with black tinted epoxy
-Ordered this 1/4″ bent piece of steel from Discount Steel which acts a counterweight plus design feature
-Chiseled/routed the bottom to house the steel base
-Fished with clear epoxy
-And Voila!

Dining Table by Jarrod

The table itself is 2” thick, 60” long and about 36” wide(this was the narrowest and shortest slab from this log). It’s finished with the walnut color Rubio monocoat and has steel legs.
