Here is a cedar table I made last year for a Green Egg Grill. I sourced the slab from a local saw mill, all of the dimensional lumber I milled from rough sawn stock. I laminated the leg blanks and I also had to cut the slab in half to add some width to it. I decided to do mortise and tenon joinery for the added strength to support the weight of the grill. This was my first experience cutting mortises and the table had 16 of them total. I finished it with general finishes outdoor oil. I was very pleased with how it turned out and the customer was too!
Bed with Blossom Inlay by Sean
It was inspired by the Chinese furniture my wife and I saw when we were adopting our daughter 2 years ago. It is made from Sapele with an oil finish. The foot board and headboard have cherry blossom inlay consisting of Ebony, Wenge, Walnut, Pink Ivory, Redheart, and tinted epoxy. Each piece of the inlay was cut out by hand and set using a router and a 1/16″ straight bit. It took about 90 hours to create the inlay in both the foot and headboard.
I just finished this local walnut 4-drawer silver chest (attached pictures) last night and I’m pleased with the way it came out. Starting with the rough lumber, it took me a year to build and I had to learn on the fly how to build a chest/case with drawer supports that allow for seasonal expansion as well as how to make hand cut dovetails (in the drawers) look good. It’s finished with Danish oil and wax. I particularly like the way the crotchwood veneer that I made looks on the drawer fronts.
Walnut Slab Table by Phillip
I included some pictures of a recent project I completed. It is all made of firewood that was rescued. The walnut slab on top was too gorgeous to cut up into other small projects. The defects highlighted the overall reclaimed idea while still playing into the modern look too. I hope you like it.
