I was wanting to work out my new old planes. I had a piece of figured black walnut, some spalted-wormy walnut that fellow LJ William gave me along with an extremely cupped piece of apple.
It started with me planing some wormy walnut and cutting to rough dimensions.
I needed a base and had a very cupped apple board.
I rough cut it and let the planing begin.
this bit took some time.
winding sticks are a help.
Never enough clamps;)
And some teak oil, blo and shellac
Man did that top pop! This project helped me iron out some setup issues with my planes. I want to thank William for his donation to my wife’s Kleenex storage device;)
I have about 12 hours in it. It was all done by hand tools. Thanks for viewing;)
Oh I like the transition from the apple to the sap wood of the walnut, then the top has both with some figure.
