no previous part Part 1 of Juniper One Board Project Competition series Part 2: So Now The Seat »

This is the latest joyful challenge put forward to the members of Central Oregon Woodworkers

The board is 6” x 105” x 15/16 rough. No other wood is allowed. Hardware is ok.

The prize: Everybody brings about 2bf of some kind of wood to the meeting, we all vote for the top three, the top one wins and gets the box o’ boards.

The finished object must be: Something upon which one could sit.

The images you see here show the board, having been planed just past hit-and-miss, cut into three equal lengths and glued into a block.

.

Then I did the concept drawing!

Then it was resawn midline and from those two pieces I ripped 4 lengths of square stock and glued the remaining two pieces together.

From the square stock I cut the four best legs I could get, 16 inches long.

And there it sits for the time being. Must be done by February 7.

I’m a newbie to woodworking but, am getting ready to build a Juniper coffee table. Do you have any suggestions on how to plug my drill holes when I make lamps? I can’t find a way to match to wood once the glue dries. I save sawdust from each piece and use that dust to mix with glue but, it still dries darker than the wood around the hole.
appreciate any thoughts. Also, can you ellaborate on the project so I can see if I will be able to complete it?

I would like to bring something to the meeting for the wood challenge but, having never made anything you can sit on I don’t know if I can get it together in time,
