So I was thinking about using some more Jabota to finish off the bench and I unloaded the rest of the boards from the bottom of the stack. I guess I forget how crooked they were:
Amazingly, that 8.5” wide piece of Jabota is almost flat, but look at the crook!
I am considering using the crook board for end caps and vice faces (it’s 12’ long) along with some Curly Maple for proper accent.
Also ripped some Hard Maple which came from the Mille Lacs Lake area to use as the front and rear apron – this is a mockup – not glued:
I am defineately at that “not exactly sure” what the right next step of the project is, but will continue to make it up as I go….......
Oh, I should mention – got a really cool plane last Sunday (before the tornado) – check this baby out – an E.C. Emmerich 701 Jointer plane (Craigslist for 1/3 retail):
There is no way however – I am going to attempt the “Crook” with the new Emmerich tho…....
Thanks for looking….
