After making the wooden Sledge hammer I was able to recover some larger sections of timber this week.
So I decided to make a small plain stool, having Sam Maloof Signature joints on the legs
I am not sure of the age if this timber but its former life it was a Potato crate untill a collision with a fork lift required it to be repaired.
The damaged sections went into the rubbish bin, apart from some I rescued for a “New” life.
I guess it sure beats sitting in a factory holding 900 kGs of potatoes, or getting burnt.
There is a blog of the same name showing the transformation from rubbish to Lounge room if you are interested.
I am hoping PASs reads this as I want to investigate the aspect of timber polishing further.
The usual wood working processes were involved the construction.
The final finish is polished with white polishing compound and a buff up with a Terry Towel cloth.
I want to see if I can improve on the finish so chip in if you have a suggestion.
I will be keen to try it.
