i haven’t posted any work because i haven’t been on these here internets. most of my time lately has been moving house, house painting, unpacking, dump runs, and other such things. the woodworking is suffering because of my move – i’m not sure suffering is the right word – i’m quite happy doing house stuff. i’ll get back to it once i’m settled. soon. try this in the mean time – http://www.flickr.com/photos/illiumworks/ (not current either – and no tool was involved in the cutting of the thumb, ducting for dust collection).
besides, i’ve a wedding present to finish for some friends. a solid bubinga topped coffee table with wenge legs and such. it has turned into a two for one deal – if i’m making one, why not make two? right? the other is live edged cebil with black alowood (http://www.alowood.com/products.htm) legs and base. both the bubinga and cebil are wide pieces, so that begs the question of keeping them flat huh? i decided on a sliding dovetailed batten, fixed in the bottom center of the batten with a glued in dowel. time will tell if there is foolishness in this process.
just writing about it makes me want to get to the shop. but alas, my walls are begging for paint….
