515 days ago by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 30 comments »

Here’s the top before any of this started. After dis-assembly of the top from the base, jointing the edges, re-gluing, re-attaching, scraping and re-re-re-finishing (thanks again, Andy!), this table got the fifth and final coat of 3-2-1 and is DONE. Now to find a place for it in the house, because it’s too nice to sit in the shop! Thanks for looking.

A word to the wise ..........

545 days ago by Oldtool | 12 comments »

A while back I posted my first turning project, a carving mallet, in the hopes of securing tips on how to avoid skew catches.
