My blog is of my creations, My furniture, using wood I have collected from here and there, occasionally buying some to make up the difference.
My design is often based around what I have available.

Sort of Finished

Here it is sort of finished, the whitish look on the draw front is due to it having a bit of a sand, all of it now needs a sand then taking to a professional spray painter who will give it a satin coat of clear.
I have been asked for a serving tray, so here was an excuse to experiment with another banding, so look out for the next pics.

Lets celabrate spring

We had the most wonderful day for the first day of spring but today was not so hot.
I now have the legs to the table veneered, I have used 12mm ply and I was a little concerned as they did feel a little bendy I veneered all edges with 1mm veneer's glued with PVA,  I did the vacuum press of the first side over the weekend and the second side this morning and now they are so much stiffer just no flex at all, so this coming weekend may just see me having a go at hand cutting some dovetails, I have used a machine for all my dovetails in recent years so to hand cut some will be a first in over 35 years, the draw front is thin so there will have to be something special about the dovetails.
I am thinking to detach the legs for the purpose of spraying the table as I think I will get a better sand job and it will be just so much more crisp, the top will of course be loose.
No photos this time, but once the draw is made I will assemble it then it will be worth a photo.
