These sets started when a friend from work saw my last Cherry Set. He wanted these for his Father and Father-in-law for Xmas. Since it takes me so long on these and he wanted to have them by Xmas I was a bit worried whether I could finish them in time or not. He also wanted the process documented along the way. I took quite a few pictures from a slab of Mesquite to the finish. If you would like to see a more detailed process please visit my Flickr site. Look under the set called (Lee M. Sets Process to Completion). click here Ricks Handcrafts
This starts out with a slab of Mesquite 12” to 14” wide 2” thick by about 9’ long.
Since I can only figure out how to post 6 pictures I will post the results. Again please vist my Flickr Page to see most of the in between….
