So I was given what was basically an old chunk of walnut firewood by a friend, as well as some random scrap pieces of milled walnut (among other useful things as well). I decided one day to roughly slab the big chunk when I was already doing the same with a cedar log for another project. It looked amazing when I opened it up, so I continued with the process. I started by using my router sled on one side of both slabs (2 pieces is about all the big chunk yielded). Then sent both thru the plane...
I just started this build for a client. We originally started with 6/4 sweet gum. That did not work as the wood was heavily warped. We switched to a walnut that is fairly flat, but also only 4/4. Originally on of the 45’s on the desk was going to be a waterfall joint with a hidden spline. Instead I will most like craft the 45, but back it with metal to strengthen the joint. The other side of the desk will be supported by a metal leg. I have not decided what I will seal it with. I am ope...

Hey Folks, Just wanted to let any fellow woodworkers know that we’ve been focused on buying and cutting crotch sections of walnut & finally have them coming out of the kiln every 3-4 months. We have about 150 slabs in our Wimberley, TX located between Austin and San Marcos, TX. Part of what we offer is a focus on bookmatch sets although we certainly have a lot of singles. These sections of slabs are typically 18”-24” wide. We cut everything at 10/4. Lengt...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7q1lboLLjAQ In this video I’m making lumber from some Canadian Black Walnut logs on a 1992 wood-mizer LT-40HD. I’m flitch sawing the logs keeping the live edge on. Which is not only good for table tops, I get extra lumber that I can use for my chairs because of the curves of the legs, fit the curve of the boards. As always thanks for watching!

I spent the better part of the last two weeks applying Arm R Seal to the table. The table top got four brushed coats of full strength Arm R Seal on each side. Between each coat I buffed with a 1000 grit festool platin pad. I then wiped on a 50/50 mix of Arm R Seal and Naphtha on each side. Here is the top after the fourth coat: And after the final wipe on coat: The base got five coats of wiped on Arm R Seal/Mineral Spirits 50/50 mixture: Finally, it was time to attach the b...
