Hey Guys and Gals,
It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to do more than a 15 second perusal of all the awesome stuff you guys keep adding here and even longer since I’ve had the time to add some myself. But hopefully this will change that!
A friend of mine is preparing to go to the Czech Republic to work with the Church and needs to raise some funds to be able to do so. We’re doing an auction of all kinds of things and I was asked to build a small piece of furniture to sell. After going around for a little while I whipped this up inspired by the base of Brian Havens Asian Cabinet
Take a look at the final design:
I contacted a friend who works at a Mill and Cabinet Shop and so out of the scrap pile (plus a little) we now have some beautiful curly maple for the legs and aprons and some really awesome ribbon sapele for the top. I wish I had a picture of the wood to show but I forgot.
Off to the shop I go!
Next in this series will be gluing up the top, cutting aprons, tenons and a whole lot of mortises!
