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.
