In this episode I take you step by step through the building of the frame and panel back. We cover setting up the rail and stile router bits, sizing the panels, and cleaning it all up. http://www.justsquareenough.com/2014/06/walnut-hall-tree-part-3.html
Why is it that when I see a tree being cut down, and I stop for a piece or two or three to turn on the lathe, when I get into a really nice, drier, figured interesting piece, I only grabbed one chunk, and when its wet as can be, boring, stinky, and hard to make viable, I have taken a half truckload?

My father-in-law makes rustic furniture and I started going through his scrap pile to discover he has a lot of small chunks of beautiful wood.
