I’ve been working on this project for a while now. Everything is solid cherry and the top two shelves are one board. That was a gamble but the boards seemed to be pretty stable so we’ll see how it looks in a couple years. This is my first project using cherry and i have to say, it smells awesome when cut! I’ve still got a couple more coats of finish to put on it before i can call it done and can post pictures in the projects section. Zac
Here is the picture that should have gone with my last post. Took it this morning. I now have all the major boards up and have one coat of stain on everything. Also, I am keeping a full listing of pictures on my picasa site. The link is below. http://picasaweb.google.com/douglasheatherwilson/PergolaProject##

Well, it’s Sunday and I have a little time to let all my friends here at LJ know what we’ve been up too.As many of you know, my job description here at the Padlock is a little complicated.

I am running about 750 cows which were supposed to be part of the guest operation if we had guests. ” if we had some eggs we could have ham and eggs if we had some ham...
- – - – - – - – -Update:I just realized I never posted pictures of the finished door. After reading a few books on finishing, I decided to use Linseed Oil, Shellac, and Wax. I like the fact that these products are all very “natural” and have been used for centuries. And I am really please with the results. After one application of Linseed Oil (boiled) I mixed the shellac myself (there is a place here in San Francisco called Sinopia Pigments that sells...

I got through designing my redwood burl tabletop end table. The sketchuo file is located here. I would like to hear some criticism on this, even though it is my first piece of furniture.

I wouod also like to know if my approximations for the mortise & tenon joints are ok. Let me know… I also created ssome...
July is a very hot month here. Although the rest of the year is very nice, the summers are extreme. I had been hoping to have time to work out in my garage but its nearly unbearable with temp. up to 114 and even hotter in the garage. I recently purchased a porable air conditioner and tried it out today. What a disappointment. It hardly made a difference and the air blew hot. I know many of you deal with very hot summers. Any suggestions? I don’t want to throw away anymore money at the ...
