So, while I should have been posting new work and projects as they happen,
I’ve spent all my blogging time doing this:
|Don loves Lindsay.|
|Not awful. Very surprised.|
So now I’m getting back on track. There’s going to be a barrage of posts in the next week to catch up on all the projects I’ve done since last summer. And I promise not to take a big break like that again.
|Blank canvas. Reclaimed Douglas Fir
from an old grain elevator in Southern Saskatchewan.
|Table top layout. Matching colour and grain patterns.|
|Who doesn’t love glue-ups?|
|Upside down tables: still hilarious, one year later.|
So I had this commissioned table, and the clients wanted the top to have boards running width-wise instead of the usual length-wise. Cool choice, but causes problems with wood movement. As temperature and humidity change, wood expands and contracts across its width. I had to take this into account and build in some pretty clever (if I do say so) hidden gaps to allow for movement.
|Assembled, one coat of stain.|
On to the next one.
