My baby girl has a birthday soon and I decided to add to her collection of wood stuff made by Dad. Fortunately she is a wonderful daughter who is always appreciative. This is an idea that has been in my head for a while and I recently decided to make it happen. Although not a big fan of Red Oak I have quite a bit of it and thought I would give it a try on this project. Two hours of design work, one hour of machining, two hours of hand work and a little stain and Deft and I am pleased.
I use a ShopBot CNC router and am pleased with the dimension this tool adds to my work. Some may say I am cheating but I prefer to think of it as using every aid possible to make something good out of wood.
By the way if any of you want to learn more about CNC woodworking go to www.100kgarages.com and find someone in your area who does this work. It’s a pretty great bunch of guys and gals who will be glad to show you what can be done. If you are headed to Florida stop by and see me.
Next up my Son’s birthday gift.
Thanks for looking,
