17 May Matt’s Weekly Shop Update – May 16, 2016
Outside this week, I was able to get my stack of ash all ready for drying. The smaller log was temporarily stacked in my driveway after I cut it into slabs. In the shop, I worked on the porch swing/day bed thingy.

Bassinet by Peter
Tool Cabinet by Blake
As with everything I make – I compiled some photos and ideas from tool cabinets online and came up with this. Measures 38″ tall, 30″ wide, doors 3.25″ deep and cabinet 4.5″ deep. Left a small amount of room for some future tool purchases but had to order the remaining sweethearts as those empty slots were killing me. Drawers are made of birch and same with the splines.
Bed Into a Bench by Yoni
I am 17 years old an i have been woodworking for a couple years now and i have been woodturning for about 2 years now. Someone asked me to make this bench from an old bed, the bed had been in her family for many generations however it broke when moving it so therefore i was asked to turn it into a bench. The back of the bench is made from the headboard and the footboard was cut in half to make the sides. The front and the top where you sit is made from the sides of the bed.
Chinese Elm Table by Bob
The top is about 12/4 slice of Chinese Elm with the bark inclusion incorporated into the relief carving of a Special Forces unit crest, with several of my challenge coins inlaid. The finish is a two part epoxy glaze. The base is made from pine. It nearly 2 years for that slice to dry….tested my patience.
