Hi Folks
Well, here we are! In full “Philovision”, for your viewing pleasure ;)
As it was a beautiful sunny day (yes, I even mowed the lawn!) I thought outside was the perfect venue for a photo shoot. Especially as I don’t have a studio to take my shots in….....
Take a little look here…....
So do you like? I’ll take some more shots indoors to get the details but it looks pretty good. The drawer front is lagging behind a little in color – the rest of the walnut has started to take on that deep glow. Yum!
The drawer action is pretty good for such a wide, narrow drawer. The runners work real good and the closure feature (which pulls the drawer closed over the last 30mm automatically) is a real delight. Everyone who has seen it in the flesh plays with the drawer a few times :)
Onto other things – I have lipped the MDF components of my tool chest base unit with solid walnut and stitched together the veneers ready to press. Should have something to show soon.
Cheers
Phil

Beautiful sunny day, huh? I thought you said you lived in the UK!

Excellent photo work, Phil! Your table turned out better than I’d imagined! I love the combination of the different grains and the fluting – it really gives it the appearance of motion. Well-done, Phil.

Nice project. I like the fluted legs. Glad we got to go along for the ride.

Your modifications to get rid of the sap wood worked great.

Nice project

What a delight to see a project through from start to finish. As usual, Phil, your craftsmanship is exceptional. The design is very unusual. Nice to make something so unique. Well done.

bravo – “we” did it.. Well, it feels like we were part of the process as you shared the journey with us.
This is beautiful.

Phil: one of the workers at the toy workshop told me about a friend getting some walnut from another friend 14’ long, 22” wide and 2 3/8” thick 7 boards for $100.00. No sapwood on any of the boards

I want to find that friend.

Philip – That is beautiful!, I very much admire your vision to create such a piece of artwork. The craftsmanship speaks for itself – How did you do the fluting?
