First of all, Thank-you Rob!! ( Tule Peak Lumber ) who sold me this amazing wood a while back.
I started making a cabinet out of oak for the shop for fine tools storage. I wanted to practice with the Sommerfeld Router Bit Kits I bought and had prevoiusly reviewed. http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/product/1811
I figured it would be better to practice with a shop cabinet before making the 2 exotic wood cabinets for a wall in the kitchen Blondie wants. The dimensions are 4’ wide, 3’ tall and 6 inches deep. T&G construction and pocket hole face frame. I was running short on red oak, due to a long check in a board for the raised panel. I have 150 board feet of this blue oak so I figured why not use a board or two. Rob had warned me this was some hard wood. Boy was he right. As some of you know, my 2 1/4 Triton caught fire last week. http://lumberjocks.com/topics/23154
It has been a week now since HTC said they were sending out another router even allowing me to upgrade to the 3 1/4 Triton. So I have 6 inches left to cut on the 2nd door and I can put the stick and cope rails and stiles together and finish this. Some have requested that they wanted to see what this wood looked like so here it is a little early.
I used Gunstock stain on the red oak cabinet and nothing on the blue oak other than 5 coats of wipe on poly. I filled in all the knot holes with 5 min epoxy the sanded.
Thx for looking.
