I spent the day cleaning up the sink. I used Gorilla glue to set the sink because it adheres well to sanded metal. But it also foams up and makes a big mess . So my solution was to set the sink about 50 thousands below the wood surface then carefully flat sand the glue overflow. Next I dragged a thin hacksaw blade between the sink and the wood creating a kerf about 1/16 inch deep . Took several hours to clean out the Gorilla . So now I have a perfect outline of the metal to wood which I then filled with epoxy. There is a slight amount of epoxy overlay and a lot soaked into the end grain causing the little bit of shadow. Now here is the trick -there is an oiled sample  board in one of the pics showing the eventual color of the top next to the thin epoxy soaked transition (the kerf ). Tomorrow I sand and blend the wood to the steel seamlessly and later the final finish colorwise will  blend right into the transition .  Cheers Rob

Funny, I so distracted looking at the dog which appears to have one good eye and didn't notice all the other dogs.  Glad to see the kitchen coming along.

The little one came to us five months ago SEVERLY abused along with her brother. Tony who works here saw a guy dump them out of a box on to the highway when he was coming to work and he scooped them up before they were killed. Both dogs were in horrible condition from physical abuse. When I first saw them I just sat and cried ..............Now they never leave my side, and will never go without anything they need or want. All of our dogs over the years come to us more or less this way. Tomorrow I'm donating a slab table to be auctioned off for a boxer dog rescue organization.

  

  

  

  We like dogs around here! Cheers  Rob

I have never seen anyone mount a sink in a wood top like that. What happens with seasonal wood movement when the sink is not floating on the top?  ???

I've been subsetting sinks like this for years, so far without problem.The wood in all cases is sealed with epoxy on all faces. This sink also had about an inch of "spin" over six feet making it very hard to get level with the wood surface. We shall see if it holds, otherwise it is off to plan "B"....Rob

The guys worked the mills today producing  various cookies for the next projects. I'm still stuck on "kitchen duty".

I'm in the woods but we have dogs/cats that find their way to us that people have tossed out for one reason or another.  I hate people sometimes.

Love the project and the donut.  Glad you're helping the dogs.  We even have an orphan parakeet that was on our sidewalk one day.  He let me pick him up which meant he was really stressed.  He provides us with lots of entertainment including teasing our old cat.  BTW, the donut looks like a bobcat face if you rotate it a bit.

I worked through the weekend and got the corner of the kitchen done. VG doug fir cabinets, windows, and entry doors, tan oak ceiling, teak work surfaces.  Meanwhile the march of tables goes on and on.

The cuttings were finally dry enough that I ran them through the kiln at 155 last night, just to make sure. I am using a penetrating epoxy that will tend to hold the bunch together, but still allow me to unwrap the string that binds the bunches. This epoxy is different in that it has a vehicle or thinner that needs to outgas over a couple of days. It's intended use is for dryrot, but I use it for all sorts of things in the finishing process. After these have hung for a couple of days we'll move onto the next epoxy step. Rob

Second epoxy application , this time with AeroMarine 300/21, a little more viscous resin to stiffen things up.I'm off to the AWFS wood show tomorrow marking the first day in 6 years that I've set foot outside of the shop.  Next week ---Rob

  A special jig to safely slice the vines into mini cookies. The guy to the rear shovels the cookies into a wheelbarrow. Everyone keeps a safe distance from the blade.
 

 
  This young man is assembling the cookies onto a thin plywood sheet.
   

 
  The blank is prepped and allowed to set for a couple of hours.
   

 
  Copper infill.
   

  

 
  And two more tray versions , one for export and the other for domestic use in  different woods. Cheers Rob
