COMPLETED: July 2014
MATERIAL: Reclaimed Mahogany
GALOOT INDEX: About an 5, as material was resawn and rough-shaped with the bandsaw. All finished surfaces via handplane and rasp.
GENERAL: Ripped some salvaged mahogany stair treads I’ve discussed before, like the moulded edge
and decided to make a square of the kind The Schwarz has been talking about on his blog. A scraps project if you will. Some pictures can talk to events better than I can. Started with two parts, jointed them and glued them together.
Resawed tread scrap and cleaned up the faces.
Cleaned up the moulding and used the #45 to cut a dado for the square ‘blade’ pieces.
And to wrap up, glued pieces and refined all surfaces for a finished product.
Left some legacy finish from tread surfaces just because, finish is beeswax and oil.
Thanks for looking.
