She did a great job.  Looks like some epoxy and a nice satin finish, not too glossy.

I guess I could post this here.  My "customer" is my Niece.  I offered and she accepted a book matched pair of slabs I glued and planned down with my router.  She did the finish work and attached the legs.

She did this last year.  IIRC, she used an epoxy to fill the cracks.  The tape on the bottom side didn't contain the epoxy the first time or two.  What a mess!  It is a dark, dark brown and you can see through the slab in a couple places.  The actual finish was not epoxy - but I don't remember what.  She is NOT a fan of high gloss and this was right on the verge of too glossy for her.  On the small end, the ripple in the grain is mesmerizing!

  Happy Birthday Tim.

   Nice table. Hope it works out as planned.
I think the night table did the trick, she melted right away.  It's going great!!
Also i'm pretty good at cooking and baking, so i made a dessert for her and her ma.  Here in Latinamerica you can really win a girl if you can cook as a men.

I love the photos. I am a wood worker too, however I bought my first Woodmizer LT30 in the 90's and one thing led to another. Well I seem to cut more lumber now than wood work. I still get time to throw a few pieces together.

About two years ago i cut up some walnut for a friends uncle. The trees came from his property and he wanted to use them in his basement remodel. He is still in the process of completing his half log walnut stairs. But other than that it is mostly complete! Id say it looks pretty sweet!

A nice Saturday project....one of the owners of my biggest customer asked if I could make a round swing for his kids. I grabbed a board to use.

 

Cut and planed to thickness



 

Couldn't help but put it on the CNC for engraving



 



Then on to the lathe to finish up (could have cut on the CNC but rounding both sides and sanding is easier on the lathe.



 



sanded and ready for finish (for him to do).





Surprisingly that didn't take long. now what do I do??

A friend of mine a makes custom Muskie fishing rods, ("the fish of 10,000 casts"), turning the wood sections on his lathe. I while back I gave him a few pieces of Black Cherry burl I had cut, which he layered along with Red Cedar, to make this rod.



Under bark there's boards and beams, somewhere in between.
Cuttin' while its green, through a steady sawdust stream.
I'm chasing the sawdust dream.

Back in June, I posted this photo of my "Happy customer" who just bought five 2" thick pine slabs.



 

Today she sent me some photos of how she used the slabs for seating at a wedding:















 

I think they came out nice.
