This year a good friend passed and left me some of his shop tools. I replicated a stool he had made and given me so I could give them to some of his friends and neighbors.
This is my first attempt at ammonia fuming and must say I like it a lot. The colors it brought out are fascinating. All the wood used I milled locally. It is live oak, black oak and western red cedar. All joinery is mortice and tenon. This time of year rattle can lacquer seemed like the best finish.
The 4th photo shows and old hardwood floor layers shim/clamping device. It sure save fumbling with an armload of clamps.
