Since we dont have a local woodworkers guild (the closest is in Knoxville), I have to depend on you guys to tell me if I am progressing in my woodworking skills at an acceptable level. In a few days I will have been lurking around here for almost a year and gosh what a year it has been. I have made some really great online friends, set up a mostly functional shop and have learned a bunch in the process. So I need to know, oh masters of lumberjocks, can I lay aside my apprentice beanie and don the apron of a journeyman? LOL (I have tickled myself)
Big ole slab of 30 year plus seasoned poplar (pretty cool, has some spalting and a tad bit of live edge to give it character) for the top and white oak for the base. Finished with BLO. Thanks to my scottish bud Jamie for giving me the idea of using the corner braces to mount the top. I was gonna use metal L brackets but this worked better.
Ok….on to the next project on the list….oh crap where did I put that list?
