Lucked into a couple planks the other day
Figured I could make a small table out of two planks. They were 4/4 by 6” by 90” long. Sawed up one plank into 30” long blanks. Then some work with the hand planes
Mainly to get some glue joint worthy edges. I also ran the smoothers over the faces of the three boards, just to see what was under all that rough-sawn stuff. Got the three into the clamps
Next morning, took the slab out of most of the clamps. I kept two clamps on, just so I could work a bit on the top. I laid out the center lines on the underside of the top ( it looked the worst of the two faces) and then drew out a fair curve for the end. Three screws&one thin piece of plywood. bend it until a cuvre I like shows up. Mark it out, and grab an old sabresaw from the 70s. New blade in it, cut the first end
Save the cut-off. Mark the other end to match. Saw that end.
And we now have a fancy top.
Hang a few clamps up and out of the way. That square hanging there made the center lines. Got the other plank into a vise, and handsawed three blanks out of it
I will see what parts I can saw out of these three. Long & Short aprons, maybe some legs? Brain Cell I am using as “SketchUp” is saying something about a “Floating” top…
Stay tuned, this could get …...interesting…
