Howdy folks. New to this forum and already started posting comments before introducing myself, so thought I’d better make amends. I’m a weekend wood butcher in Waterford, MI. I’ve spent the last few years work on shop stuff and am a few weeks away from completing my first real workbench. But though I’d post some pics of some things.

Sorry in advance for the pic quality (I’m also a film/memory card butcher).

Here’s a half moon and square end table from cherry and corian.
The half moon was bent laminations on all the curved pieces.
The inlay and tenon pegs are paduak

Welcome and remember that butchering is an honerable profession as well (altho we do it in a different medium).

Cherrywood has always held a softspot in my heart, really like the curves and lattice work.

Thanks folks. I’m still stumbling about the site figuring out where things are located and how to navigate. Haven’t had a chance to look in very much depth yet but I’ve seen some very nice project pics from everybody.

Charlie
The square ones are a piece of cake.
And I’m not sure I want to tackle a circular one again myself.

Very Very Nice Butchery Doug, You say the Paduak was inlayed, cool. I was wondering if you actually input a strip of paduak when you were glueing up the laminations. The Grilled bottoms add a inspiring Touch to the Tables. Also Welcome Aboard to LJ, I’m a fairly newbie here myself…...your brother in woodworking John
