So the mantle clock project is underway, the walnut and oak strips are cut, and the stripe section is glued up and drying in the clamps… It is now too late to run power tools, so the cross section will need to wait until tomorrow.
I had a $10.00 off any purchase of $20.00 or more at Woodcraft coupon, so I got my walnut there. I really only needed / wanted 2 board feet anyway, just enough to finish up this project, and maybe do another one for MY desk after Christmas is over…
So far, it’s looking really good, I have some scraping of the glue squeeze out to do in the next couple of hours, and then planing to my 3/4” thickness,
All told, this is NOT going nearly as quickly as I had hoped. This is for an anniversary present, and that is is 3 days!
I’m a dead man.
