Every year my beautiful wife, Debra, takes me to school to present a talk to her reading classes at Alvarado Junior High. This talk began, in 2004, with me telling the kids all about being a graphic artist and how important reading is in that job. Since I began doing this I have stopped being a graphic artist and started being a woodworker. So, last year, I changed the talk, splitting the time between one job and the other. Since last year my business started taking off, so this year I...
After cutting quite a few stumps down for different wood projects, We would need to flatten the bottom side to have it sit flat on the floor for say a table base. We would just throw the scrape peices into a plie and they would become filewood. We then started to review these throw aways a little clooser some of them were quite unique in shape and size, I started to save them as they would pile up I took a few into the shop and showed Mary them and she started with her ideas what we could use...

I payed a visit to a local sawyer yesterday, and during conversation we kind of hit it off. He had a whole lot of cherry logs and cedar that he wanted to sell. We ended up milling them, and then the more we talked, the more logs we milled. I walked out with a truckload of lumber. I had about 250bf of cherry, and 150-200fb of honey locust, slab cedar, silver maple, white oak, and ash…for 80 bucks. In the pic below, the very front is silver maple. The left 60% is cherry. The right ...
Here is the larger coffee table base. Ready to be sprayed. We will spray them with Satin Polycrylic and most likely have to flip it upside down and spray the bottome with couple of coats and when that is dry, flip it back over and do the top part.
The creative process of building the supports for the glass top took longer than expected, but then again we always expect the unexepected, so then again we did expect it. Hahaha did that make sense? Anyway here it is, we are hoping to spray them tomorrow and sunday if the wind does not blow like mad.
