got a couple huge hunks of wood a while back. Kept 'em in plastic. Turned one rough set aside to dry and the thing warped so badly that I am unsure that I have enough wood to take the warp out . I'm thinking of methods of re warping it back a little. Water hear band clamps an inner frame?? Any one tried doing this to save a blank?
I got to the point on this box (and 12 others) where it was time to route out the mortises for the lid stays.... and when I finished doing that... I realized that I routed 'em out on the front of the box, not the back, where the 10mm barrel hinge holes were already drilled out.... After a bit of head scratching....I decided to route out the same on the front of the box, square up the corners and put in some shop made inlay..... and then, still not satisfied, I drilled some 1/8" holes and pounded in some 1/8" round brass stock, sanded 'em down and now it looks like this.... Oh, and had to route out the mortises for the lid stays, this time in the correct place..... Anyways.... this customer will be in for a surprise when he opens his box.... lol
Sunday afternoon I picked up a load of Walnut logs from a gentleman that said the tree blew down sometime back and he pushed it out of the way but needed it gone. Need it gone, I am the person. There is another load that I have to pick up this weekend. I had some lumber ready to pick up at the sawmill so yesterday on my lunch hour I headed to the mill to drop of the Walnut logs and pick up a load of Maple. Once this is stacked, I will take the other Walnut logs and pick up my other load of Maple and Poplar that is ready. I just love fresh cut lumber!
We just bought a salvaged dining table from Restoration hardware. It doesn't seem to have any type of sealer on it. The first time I put a hot cup of coffee on it, it left a ring. When I tried to wipe with a wet cloth, something on the wood rubbed off, and it became a lighter spot. Now we don't dare use it at all. But will need to. What do you recommend we put on this table to prevent stains. This is a current dining table sold at RH if you need more info. I have no idea what type of wood it is or how old. Thanks, Anne
