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