Well I have been looking forward to posting my first project up here and here it is. I made this out of Douglas fur that I milled myself with a woodmiser mill my neighbor has. I could not afford to build this out of ash so I made do with what I had available. I splurged on the vises with my tax return money so that I could finish the project off. This was my first major project that I have tackled, and let me tell you that this was a joy to build. I used the experience to use both hand tools and power tools, I did half of the bench with hand tools and the other with power tools. I still need to finish the boxes for the center, but I am waiting for a load of maple to dry in my solar kiln I built. If any of you have any questions about building one of these I will answer it to the best of my abilities. Thanks for looking.
I finished the center boxes for my bench; I recently dried a ton of figured maple in my solar kiln and decided to use this to make the boxes out of. I decided to put a walnut inlay just to accent the boxes. Let me know what you think.
