A Lot Going On

Hi Folks
I started cutting out housings for warped boards that will become table legs a few posts back.
The table is glued up now with three colours of resin in the small holes and fissures in this Cat's Paw Oak , it has a lot going on in it this little table. It will have a single bent hazel brace thats currently in traction.

Here's where I'm at, just making the timber pop with Boiled Linseed Oil...;b

Treasure and Cutting Housings

Well my experimenting went a stage further to mixing polyester resin and adding brass filings,and a little green colour in some of the shakes and voids in this oak. If you enlarge these two pictures, you might just see.

I also got the housings cut, to let the table leg boards into the base. With marking knife, mallet, chisel and a little bullnose plane. I set to work removing the material.

A little trip to the carboot sale (flea market) Yielded me some treasure for less than £10.00.
A very old first aid kit, with some old dressings. Along with an almost new Leatherman Charge.

Back in the workshop feeling inspired..;b

I've got a table to make for my cousin. I'm using the oak I was preparing a few weeks back .
It has several shakes which I'm thinking about patching with some copper dutchmen, which I'm experimenting with at the moment.
As you will see in the pictures...:b

Yes I know it's been a while.
Maybe some of you have ran off understandably so!
The long winter is over and I feel inspired once more, So I took this oak out to see it in the sunlight and start preparing it for future projects.;b
