To make the top six ribbon sapele offcuts from my wood supply shop were edge glued, planed, and joined.

wow i havent been out to the shed in so long i guess its due to the fact that i have just finished all my exams and i really just was to lazy to do some woodworking but theres a big change about to happen, in about two weeks or so i will create a youtube channel, website and hopefully a Facebook page to do with me building projects. years ago i used to have youtube videos but they were dull and boring so i am giving it another shot, and i have to say with me being more experienced and with th...
