Got my first woodworking commission (I have done lots of carpentry for $$$). Building three mirror frames for a friend who is a clothing vendor at various festivals around the world, she sell very eclectic faery wear, but the mirrors in her booth were always cheapo. So I asked her if she wanted me to do something nice for her.
I drew up these rough sketches to work from (not really a sketchup guy)
Last year I got given a pickup truck load of rough cut birch, cottonwood and this spalted mystery wood (which I think is cherry but not sure, if you have a better idea let me know). All 8-9ft, 1 1/4×8, probably about 40-50 boards. (Ok gloat over)
Spent the day today ripping, jointing and planing 4 boards (in between husband/dad duties) and came up with this pile… I think it cleaned up real nice! (Pics before ripping to width on TS)
Oh and here’s a pic of the quick and dirty folding outfeed table I made for my bandsaw
More to come soon, gonna cut some curves next.
