Hi All,

I haven’t been posting much lately, as both the Ezee-Feed business and the construction business has been keeping me out of the shop.

I was asked to teach a class on basic veneering course at a local Woodcraft Store, so I figured I would post a couple pictures of the projects.

The compass rose is part of the basic course, and the Hall Table is a project done in the intermediate class. (The legs on this table will likely be changed to something different, since I’m not too crazy about the combination. I’ll make another set using lacewood, which will match the top).

There is also an advanced class, but I don’t have pictures of any projects from it just yet. It will be a fancier Hall Table

It does feel good to be in the shop again.

Lee

Lee: Great that you are able to get back to the shop. Even if it’s someone elses shop.

Are you doing this in Delaware or Philly for the class?

Nice job. If you wanted to salvage the legs, you could probably do a curving or straight V shaped inlay with the same walnut you used in the top to “bring things together”. It would in concept mirror one of the points of the compass rose on the top. Not sure if straight or curved would look better, but I’d probably avoid taking it all the way down to the feet.

Sometimes these wonderful ideas turn out not so great in practice, so I’d sketch it or render it in sketchup to make sure it won’t make things too busy.

Look forward to more posts and congrats on being busy at work. Make hay while the sun shines! There may be more clouds ahead…

Hi everyone;

Thanks for all the kind words.

A1 Jim. No, I haven’t done a blog, yet…

Karson: I did these in my shop. The classes will be in the Phila. area store, at least initially.

Steve: The legs are curly maple, with the thought being they would tie in with the quilted maple in the compass. They wont go to waste though. I’ll use them on another table. The dark wood is Kevazingo, which I is very similar to rosewood when it has a finish on it.

Lee

Like others I wish I was closer to you to take the course. It is great to see you posting again, and I always enjoy our phone talks. Wishing you the best in your teaching, and all other things you are working on.

Beautiful Lee!

Living in the BOONIES we never get to go to any classes like this,

but I enjoy just looking at your superb talent.
