Epoxy Pour, Track Saw Holster, and Spice Caddy

July 4, 2019

This week, I poured the epoxy into the form for the slab encapulation.  While that’s been curing, I’ve been doing a little shop organization and got started on my next Guild project.

Viewer Projects

Crib by Nate

When I found out my wife was pregnant I decided to make a crib. My project was heavily inspired by your design but being my first furniture build, I used different techniques. My build had a walnut frame and oak spindles. I did biscuit joinery on the frame and used 1/4″ dowels to glue the spindles in the frame. The front and back panels connect to the sides with bolts and threaded inserts. The finish is 3 coats of cutting board conditioner made with beeswax and mineral oil. I managed to finish by her due date but baby Juniper came 2 weeks early.

Dining table by Andrew

Pictured is my favorite commission to date.  It’s a 5ft diameter black walnut dining table with a steel base.  I welded the base using 14ga. sheet steel, 100% inspired and guided by Scott Turner–can’t thank Scott enough for answering a bunch of questions along the way!
The table top is special because my client’s father, a lifelong woodworker who’s now in his 90s, felled this tree & milled the lumber over 30 years ago.  This is the last of that lumber and I’m honored to be asked to do this project.  I sanded through 600 grit, finished with 6 coats of gloss Arm-R-Seal and hand rubbed with pumice, rottenstone and finally 3M auto body polishes to have a mirror sheen (as instructed by Charles Neil).

Bench Restoration by Jeremy

This is a Bench that I restored. It was originally in White Oak but after poor maintenance over 25+ years. It was badly rotten. I cleaned the metal pieces and repainted them and replaced the wooden parts with Cherry wood. All parts were hand shaped and sanded. it was sanded to from 60 Grit to 1200 Grit. then coated with three coats of marine poly urethane and wet sanded with 600 Grit and 800 Grit. It has darken to a nice golden red.

Wine Cabinet by Nat

It a wine cabinet that I designed and built as a spec project. All mortise and tenon construction out of solid red oak. Final count in the end was 58 mortise and tenons. All of the mortises were chopped by hand and the tenons were a combination of hand-cut and table saw cut. I finished it with a red oak stain and Arm-R-Seal semi-gloss.
