Before I had any joinery tools, all I had was my tablesaw and my Kreg pocket jig. I went to Clark’s here in Houston just to admire the 100+ species of wood. I found these 2 exceptional pieces of lumber(actually I found 3, one was a $75.00, 8’ stick of beeswing aniegre that I just absolutely fell in love with but couldn’t afford it, and these 2 boards!).
These 2 boards sat in my garage for a few months, before I could buy a jointer, and a planer, and frankly more lumber to work with. Well you know a guy with a tablesaw, a Kreg pocket jig, 2 great boards, and a whole bunch of time is gonna make some sawdust!! Here is a cd display I made one weekend. Finished in Tung oil.
In retrospect I should’ve saved this board for a few draw fronts on the Highboy. I had no idea I would be building one soon!! Enjoy!!
