I was in one of those strange places where I could not work on a big project because I didn’t have time to work to a stopping point, and yet I absolutely had to do some woodworking. This is an afternoon project designed to organize our supper table and score points with my bride (success, both counts.) Made from scraps, it is laminated from red oak, walnut, and an offcut of Bolivian rosewood I had on hand. A few passes through the jointer, a few passes through the lunchbox planer, a 2 hour glue-up while I emptied my dust collector and did a few other chores, and a slap-together circle template for the router, and Bob’s your uncle. 1/4” roundover on the top, 1/4” cove to make the thickness appear, well, thinner, a light sanding and a couple of shots of spray on poly. Learned that I don’t care for the spray poly. Learned that I need to learn more about photographic lighting.
Besides all of this, it’s been a while since I posted a project, so I thought I’d better get with it.
