A place for me to display some of the varied projects that come out of my shop, as well as to "talk" about some of my experiences working with wood.

Three Chairs complete

This past weekend has been a busy one in the shop, there are now three complete, ready for use.

Leminster 1,2 &3 - nice seats eh?
Leminster Chairs - Front View
 Now that the chair construction is proceeding, it's time to start work on the trestle table to match.While waiting for the finish to dry on the chairs, I dimensioned and glue-up the cherry that had been climatizing in the shop for the past couple of weeks.

Cutting 5/4 Cherry boards to length.

Table glue-up complete

Smoothing the table top with a little help from my friends Sauer & Holtey

Spent some time this afternoon smoothing the table top to eliminate the major humps and bumps and establish the top surface. Next I will flip it over and clean up the bottom before milling for the breadboard ends. Once the breadboard ends are atttached I will do the final smoothing and begin sanding. With the final table size established I can start the base.
