Loads of Customer Projects to End the Year!
I've had lots of customers projects sent through over Christmas, if there is anyone I've missed out or got wrong I apologise now! First up is Matthieu from France with a lovely curvacoeus wall cabinet, it looks too good for his workshop!
Next is Krenov style plane made by David in the UK, 10" long with a 1 1/2" Hock blade, made from Bubinga with a beech wedge. It looks very comfortable but maybe a shorter wedge would make blade adjusting easier.
Dick from Tennessee made the spice cabinet based on an article in Fine Woodworking by Steve Latta. It's made from Wenge, a very hard brittle wood and not one that's easy to dovetail. There are more than 100 dovetails in this little cabinet!
The accent wood is poplar.
Kevin from the UK has been working on his wife's Christmas present all year, not an easy one to hide! I guessed it was oak but it's actually burr lime.
He joined the two halves and to continue the waney edge all the way round added end pieces as well.
These were glued in the middle with loose dominoes further out to keep things flush and allow for wood movement.
Tue from Cornwall makes pieces from driftwood found on his local shores and this is as rustic a dovetailed table as you will ever see! I love the old paint.
And finally a pair of dovetailed side tables from Hussain in Germany. These were a present for his girlfriend and the first woodworking project he had ever done! He should be very proud especially attempting dovetails that thick on a first project.
I wish you all the very best for 2016!
