taking the weight out of walnut
« on: September 14, 2017, 08:13:30 pm »
Lots of beautiful tables here on FF , and here is may take on another one. End grain English Walnut 54X120. The start with basic orchard logs.

 
   These are all short, metal filled little beauties that turned into cookies.
 

 
  Once the design is set the basic table shape starts taking form from the cookies.
 

  

  

  The last pic shows the dado groove that will hold inset steel later.
 

  After rabbeting ,glue is spread to inset plywood.
 

  

 
 Once the bottom is set in we tip the whole mess upright and begin cleanup. Tomorrow -the start of the core.  Cheers  Rob

Wow.  To describe your vison and talent for one off pieces as creative and artistic is an understatement.  That Dado detail is going to be special!     We wait again.   Good stuff!

Hope you are safe and not in the path of any of the wildfires out there.

Thanks,
  We are well south of the big fires but there are suspicious small fires breaking out all around us this week. Smoke is in the air as far as one can see.What is of curious interest is the 4 earthquakes here at 2 hour intervals yesterday. All quakes were centered a few hundred yards away and it was a little weird. I had one timber lift topple and a massive crack widen in the shop floor.......

Wow.  Mother nature really lets us know we are just a small part of the equation.  Fire and earthquakes will remind us we are not in charge of much no matter how settled we think we are.  Stay safe and hoping for the best out that way.

Thanks again,
       From our perch here in the ridge we can see a great distance and are always wary of fire ! Just a couple of shots of the table bottom with the steel band installed. The last pic is the shop floor crack which is about 20 feet long.
