Episode 80 Entertainment Center Part 1 from kostas workshop on Vimeo.

In this episode I start working on my saw dust chronicles build challenge entry. I start working on the panels that are going to be used for the sides and the top and bottom. After I cut all the parts to size I glue up the boards to make panels.

Thanks Kosta always interesting to watch your approach to woodworking. I cant work out whats happening though, your either getting taller or my monitor is slowly getting narrower. Looking forward to part 2. Thanks Alf.

Looks like your moving right along. I was moving pretty good on my build, but I have to work outside since I don’t have a shop, and we got rain most of this week so I didn’t get much done, and now WIA this weekend, so I won’t get a chance to get back on my project till Monday. I am hoping be pretty close to finished by then by next Friday except for the inlay and poly.

What type of wood are you using? looked like pine on the video, I like working with pine, I have build several kitchens out of knotty pine before, not alway as easy to work with as people think, pine come with it own set of problems like every wood. Well good luck and I’ll check back to see your progress.

It has been dry the whole summer but this week so far since monday we have gotten 6 in of rain. The humidity is really messing with the pine panels I glued up. They were all flat and then the next day they looked really bad just from the humidity. Working with pine is harder then most people realize because your dealing with soft wood that doesnt stain good and warps like crazy. The one good thing is that it doesnt dull your blades. Somebody working on a project of this size using maple or oak is gonna have to do a good amount of sharpening during and after the project.
I will be posting the next 3 parts in this series every tuesday or wednesday for the next 3 weeks.

Have your say...
