1” thick. Maple, cherry, and walnut.
Put the first coat of Behlens on. Hope to have about 4 or 5 coats on by this time next week, then give it a few days to polish.
looks super nice. good job.
I Like the colors! NICE!
Nice job. Do you use vcarve?
Easel. Just simple shapes then cut to overall size in the table saw.
Cool. Do you use a ball nose endmill to get the nice curved bottoms?
Whiteside bowl bit.
Nice tray! Just curious, did you do your whole cutout with the bowl bit? I have been using a 2 stage cut with a 1/4" EM and a 1/2" - 1/4" radius bit but this would save a lot of time and I imagine the bottom flat to curve transition would be smoother
Entire pocket was cut with the bowl bit. 3/4” bit. 55ipm, 9ipm plunge, .02” per pass. Probably could do a bit more in the depth per pass, but it works good for me so I’m not changing it right now. Probably will when I get the linear Z and get the Y braced up.
dam, you call that scrap wood
Yep lol. You see that dang sap wood on the one walnut strip?!? There was some sap wood on the others but I managed to arrange it so it would be cut out during machining. I had planned on using it for something else but the sap wood ruined that…therefore it’s scrap. HOPEFULLY visiting a mill finally on Monday, I may come out of there broke lol
I like a little sap wood in my walnut boards - nice work though!
