Like so many others on this site, I have been inspired to give things a go. Thanks to Degoose’s blog on how to do this, and many other project postings, I can finally post a project too.
Interestingly I have modified a radial arm saw to fit a router for surfacing ( a wanabe TWC) and also built a drum sander (idea from Lj’s projects again) to help with this project. That means that future projects will be easier to complete and that means more fun.
The timbers are New Zealand natives, Rimu (redish), Totara (dark) and Kahikatea (Light). The Rimu is recycled from an old house framing, the Totara was an old tree buried in a river for many years that my father in law discovered, retrieved and had milled. The Kahikatea is also from the in laws farm that was milled quite some time back. Finished with mineral oil.
Size 365×330 x 30 mm
Thanks again for the inspiration.
