Timeframe: Mar – May 2015
Wood Used: Construction Grade 2×6 White Pine for Tops, Pine aprons, BORG Pre-Turned Legs
Galoot Index: Maybe a 7? That based on use of hand planes for all finished surfaces, but cross-cuts and rips were done a lot with the RAS and table saw. M&T joinery is a plus, along with hand-cut half blind dovetails in the drawers of the buffet, but mortises via electron-killing mortiser was a definite non-galoot cheat.
- First, the need.
This is a commission job, my first. Details in the blog, so I’ll say go there to learn more. I will say this is an internet-based build (Ana White?) that I modified to fit the way I would build it. Lots of communication and status with the client so they’d be fully ‘in the know’ on what they’d get and how it’d be built. Very pleased with the process and the outcome.
- Now, the motivation.
Getting paid to spend time in the shop, with a six-week (loose) schedule. Can’t beat that! Plus, a learning experience in more ways that one.
Again, gonna be a bit lazy with the project post and steer you towards the blog for details on the build. Sorry to do that, it’s not like me, but things are kinda crazy with the calendar this May. Maybe I’ll fill in details at a later date, so until then, check out the blog. And as always, thanks for looking!
