« Part 2: Messy shop Part 3 of what i've been doing series Part 4: more bench »

I found wood.. close buy… ok now what?
I bought 8 board feet of ribbon sapele to build a bench for my wife. While we were shopping that day we like to go to second hand shops. We stopped at an antique shop and i started digging around and found a 6 by 1 foot board in the back of the store. It was black walnut and very figured. I asked the old guy what he wanted for it. He scratched his head and said “20 bucks”. I said “sold”. So I got home and started to try to create something ‘me’ and my design.
Here is the start.

more to come…...

That’s a great board for $20 Dave! Not sure where you’re going with this… but I like what I see. Looking forward to the next entry!

Thanks Chip and Rivergirl. My wife is waiting for this to be finished so she can sit on it insteed of the end of the bed to put her shoes on.
