I am a little late in thanking everyone for the warm welcome I received when joining LJ.
With my father being a retired cabinet maker / carpenter, I have been around woodworking most of my life. I have experience rehabbing/remodeling houses, building decks, roofs, kitchens, baths, etc. I always wanted to learn how to really work with wood.
We have a small shop setup in my dad’s garage. Over the years my father and I have built a wide variety of items for family members or special orders. He has always taken the lead and I was basically labor and company. Now it is my turn to learn. Dad is enjoying helping. Pictured are a few of my current projects.
We made one of my daughters a kitchen cart with the base made of cherry and the top being an end grain maple cutting board 2” thick finished with a combination of mineral oil and paraffin wax. . Her kitchen had limited counter space. Something every college student should have.
A couple of serving trays, one made of walnut and maple and the other of mahogany and maple. A few crosses made of maple, pango and zebrawood with maple inlay. I made these for the family. And of course a couple of cutting boards and yes the Wood Whisperers design.
I just wanted to thank everyone for posting their projects and more importantly instruction on how it was made. I have a good understanding of woodworking but the instruction and tips from experienced woodworkers really helps.
Thank you again. Hopefully I will more projects soon.
