First of all I would like to say, I am way out of my league here, some of the work that you post here on LJ’s is absolutely incredible, I’ve been woodworking since high school and now I’m 31, but still have yet to really hone my precision skills, I’ve made tons of little projects but I really got back into woodworking after I made this Seattle Seahawks beer pong table.
I haven’t had the balls to post on here yet because my work doesn’t hold a candle to most of what I see on here, but I finally got the nerve to join and show some of my work.
These are a few of my Beer Pong tables I’ve made, the Seahawks one was the very first one I made for a buddy’s bachelor party. I’m a huge Trail Blazers fan so those are the ones I’ve focused on, but there have been a couple others.
The Seahawks table, and the pic with the 2 Blazers tables next to each other are made with cheap OSB, and then I realized how much better they look when made with AC cabinet plywood (and how much easier it makes painting my logos). So since then I’ve been using AC 3/4 plywood, and I have been recessing the triangles for the cups. The US Soccer one was for sure the hardest one, I made it for a bday present for one of my best friends from his wife, I can’t believe i actually finished it, I screwed up the logo 3 days before it was suppose to be done and it was a damn miracle that I got it done.
I have a couple others I’ve made as well. I will post some of my other stuff on here too. Lately I’ve been on a total cutting board kick, a couple years ago I made 2 cutting boards for Christmas presents, and since then I’ve made 2 or 3 every year, but after looking here and seeing all of these end-grain projects I’m totally obsessed with them, and I think I need a new blade for my table saw or something, because everytime I cut them the 2nd time to turn them onto the end-grain they are totally bowed with the middle being just a little too wide and causing them to snap when I glue them, but soon enough I will have a couple examples to share!
Just want to say that its really cool all of the projects I see on here and I can’t believe I just discovered this website a couple weeks ago, where have you been all my life LJ’s? ;-)
