Customer's projects pictures thread
« on: January 11, 2014, 10:56:54 am »
Do we have one thread where we post pictures of customer's projects?

I thought we did.

If we don't we should start one.

I recently got a couple.

 

  



 

About a week or so ago, I got this one from a fellow who bought some walnut from me to turn a bowl:

 

 

He wanted a photo of the log it came from to show the person who got the bowl. He is a beginner bowl turner. And he knows he's got a lot to learn. He was requested more bowl blanks but will get back to me later on when he has exact details of what he wants.

Its rewarding to see someone build something beautiful with the wood you cut. I've cut some really pretty stuff for folks but I know DanGed well it will rot in a pile. Frank C.

It is always rewarding to watch a customer's trees go
 

 
from logs
 

 
to stickered lumber
 

 
and then to wall paneling
 

 
in his new home.   :)

I am truly amazed at some of the projects customers build with my (their ;D) wood. 
I post many of the projects on my web page (with their permission).   Two of my favorite ones are the harp that a customer's dad built for his granddaughter for Christmas, and the "Man Cave" a fellow built for the basement of his new house.

Here are a few pieces made from an old walnut root that had been down for about eight years.

After I quit slobbering over the old cars, I noticed a mighty fine building around them.

A few months ago, Jmoore and I sawed a longleaf pine log to provide a little lumber for one of our friends who was teaching an ag mechanics class at a nearby college.  He had each of the students plane their boards and build an "A" shaped tool box as a class project using woodworking tools.  The boards that were left over were used to build this t.v. shelf in his house.  Yesterday he came by to pick up some 2" x 12" s to replace the blue/gray steps seen in the picture.  He does not own a table saw, lost most of his right hand in an accident when he was a young man and made all of the cuts with a circular saw.  I was impressed.  I look forward to seeing the new steps.

A customer just sent me in some pictures of a table he made and sold out of a slab of maple I sold him.
And the legs are some pieces of walnut he got from me also.

Here are some of the photos:

 

 

 

 

 

 

The top was from a tree from Gloucester, MA and the walnut came out of the same log I got the bowl planks from, I think.

This guy has just bought a house with a huge barn in Southern NH, where he will be making furniture in a shop there and selling custom made stuff.
He is going to get more maple slabs from me and make more tables.
When I visit his shop/showroom, I'll take some more pictures.

Jim Rogers

PS. the piece of glass appears to be inlaid so that it is flush with the maple top surface.
Whatever you do, have fun doing it!

Jim I really like his idea of using the glass pane as a guide to straight line the cut to get best book end match.
