One of the byproducts of sawing logs is the half round slab that is removed in the process of squaring up the log. These are typically cut into firewood, chipped, or burned. I set aside a few chunks that I was carrying to the fireplace that looked a little too beautiful to burn and transformed them into these serving trays. This is a really quick project that would make a great gift.
Finished up the quick platter project and got finish on one of the carved drawer fronts. Surfaced the first of the waterfall table slabs with the new surfacing bit. Prepped the panels for the drawer bottoms and finished the initial epoxy work on the outfeed table top.
Highboy is mostly moved inside and although not all the drawers are complete, I'm finally able to see how it will look when complete. In the shop, the waterfall table slabs are ready to be flattened and I answer some questions regarding the new metal cutting bandsaw.
Easily the most poorly utilized space in my shop is along the back wall. As my shop has changed and evolved over time, I haven't given much effort to the layout of the items that live along this wall. I've been so busy working on the highboy for the past several months that I haven't been able to put any effort into cleaning and organizing. Well I drank some Mountain Dew Saturday night and was up until 4am cleaning.
Got most of the finish applied to the upper case and finish prepped and got one coat onto the lower case. I also started breaking down and prepping the stock for the backboards and drawer bottoms.
