Raym, I really like those wheels.  Great idea!

Did you use a bushing in the center or rely on the wood?  Router for wheel slot?

There is a 7/8" bearing in the center that is pressed in with a 3/8" bolt through hole. The wheel slot is just cut on the lathe, about 1/4" deep.

No. They are made up with 2 layers of 1/2" glued up cross grain. Very solid....

Didn't get a picture with the customer (this was for a builder so customer want there) but here is another barn door. Loved how this turned out. Not a true bookmatched set but very close. 2 slabs glued up is a whole lot easier to make a door than a true style and rail. Spalted ambrosia maple.

Yesterday, a customer sent me a picture of the white pine slab he made into a table for sitting around his fire pit patio area.
I think it looks ok but not sure if he filled the ant holes or not.

I think we pulled that out of the trash pile when he was here.

John and I recently sawed some longleaf pine that was purchased by some friends of ours (former students) to use in the construction of a cabin they are building.  They also picked out a 21' cedar log to place in the center of the structure.

Thanks it was fun to make. I want to find more work like that as I enter retirement! This week I'm working on a 12x16 Barn for my wife (a tough customer) timber frame, mortise and tenon. I put a gambrel roof on it, I built one once 30 years ago on a house. I will post in the section for that when I'm done! I could have built 3 - 2x4 buildings in the same time!!! All the first beams I cut w my mill.

I think he did a nice job.

I tend to orient my live edge the other way for that reason for tables and benches.

Man, you guys (Youse guy's for our northern brethren, You'uns for those around the Eastern Ohio/WV Northern Panhandle/Western PA area or our Y'all for our deep South highly cultured and elite member) are killing me. The last time I showed a bench I had made with the wide side up  y'all beat me up (again). I normally position my slabs like Jim's customer did his bar top but sometimes reverse it if I have a good reason like I felt led to do so. :D

Jim,

  I really like that bar top.

Dana,

   I truly love that cedar log in the center of the cabin. I can see it getting used for so many purposes! Very well done. Keep  on posting.

I would think for a bench you would want the narrower side on top because it may be more comfortable to sit on. For a bar, the wider side on top might be better for extra width and for holding more drinks.

I think if this Particular slab was flipped over, he would not be able to enjoy the live age as well on the angle that it is.

To me it's like a natural chicago style bar rail. You can lean your elbow into while drinking! Might have to get rid of the stools for that though...
