I saw some of these on LJs here a couple weeks ago. Luv2learn had built some pretty nice ones, I liked them, so I thought I’d give it a try. These are the batch that I made. Because my planer is currently 300 miles away I was limited to what 1/4” stock I had lying around. They’re made from Longleaf Yellow Pine that was first a barn, then reclaimed for the Civic Center ceiling in New Braunfels, Texas. I was the installer so I keep some of the drops for future projects. The legs are made from ipe.
Three of the four boxes were spoken for. Two of the three went to close friends that are also some of my best customers. We have butted heads in the past over logo placement, I like for it to be discreetly hidden, I put it on everything I make at the shop. Both of the customers are in the want to see it camp. So I put it front and center on all of them. It’s done with a branding iron I made, that I heat with a torch, doesn’t always come out so well. That’s why I like it out of sight.
