Hey there! Sorry for the shortage of posts this week. I had to tend to my real work. I should have some more cool stuff to document on Friday! The bed construction is almost complete and I discovered that the chairty cutting board I glued up is too wide for my planer! Doh! Looks like I'll have to do some trimming to get it ready for end grain cutting and then glue up #2. Thanks for checking out my work!
I was looking through my scrap wood cart the other day and came across a piece of imbuya that was dried out and cracked. I cut it into smaller pieces that I could still fit in the planer and glued the broken pieces together. Afterwards, I scraped and then planed all of the boards flat again and then laminated them together into a big block. The candle stands I had been thinking about doing for some time now. I think they turned out great with the linseed oil finish! I lacquered them today and will do another coat tomorrow.
Whew! Today was exceptionally productive.. I did lots of everything that I didn't actually need to do!! I'll post project series photos for what I did today possibly tomorrow. Check my to do list to see what I have done. You can also check progress photos on Instagram #woodprojectsbybagel
I designed this bed for a play to have more purpose than just being a bed.. It can stand on its side and becomes a bar. It can also be separated from the headboard and become a bed and shelf set. It's fairly large for a bar but it will be versatile!
Its a start! Just gotta work on the headboard.. This should look pretty good on wheels!
I was looking through my different scrap hardwood pieces and found this one that was dried up and cracked badly.. I have a plan for this material so I broke and glued the pieces back together.. I'm hoping this works out!
Also, I forgot to mention that you can see project progress photos on Instagram by searching my hashtag #woodprojectsbybagel.
I'm building a box for my sister in-law's late Christmas present. It's coming together pretty well I'd say. The movement of plywood is entertaining and frustrating at the same time when making anything square. I can definitely appreciate the use of a biscut joint and would have benefited from that tool on Friday.. Stay frosted for pictures! Next up is drama set projects!
Last weekend I was able to meet up with great guy that had a bunch of barn wood for sale on kijiji. We struck up a deal and now I've got truck box full! I've got a few projects lined up for this material which will look pretty spiffy I think. The barn this material is from was over 80 years old!
While in Edmonton yesterday I also found some old cedar siding.. Should be good project building in the coming weeks!
