A means to buy some more toys I built this for one of my previous customers. This turned out to be an interesting project as it was mostly pre constructed in the shop and then installed. As with most houses now days there was not a pair of consistent angles anywhere to be found. Not even the floor and the walls go figure. this made the prefabrication work particularly interesting.

The painting and pillow construction were completed by the customer.

Thanks to this I was able to get my new Jet lathe and hopefully not I can finally use some of the cherry, spalted maple and mystery wood I have been hiding behins the shop for the past few years. :o) I also have a holly log that I am experimenting with that I am eager to try. I soaked one end of it in an alocohol based blue dye for about 4 months ai can just start to see come of the color leaching through the top of it and have had it drying for about a year.
Thank for looking
Jeff

Scottichbob, if you care to contact me via email I can provide some additional photos and info to assist you. I believe it in the best interests of all our fellow Lumber jocks not to publish our fees on this forum. I will happily send you the info individually however
