A LOUD crash.   Instead of fixing water damage from that fire almost 3 years ago..Landlord simply painted over it..

FAIL!!.   Glad nobody was coming in the front door.....

 

Screws were bought and installed, along with the knob..

There are some out there, that do NOT like that hint of live edge along the front of the top...BFD.   Still have to get a start on the bookcase part

Good progress on the lower unit. I like it...Don't let "the boss" convince you to paint it;) Would look good with a light or medium oak stain, but that's just me.

 

As for the "chicken little" event, glad no one was hurt...need to make sure to keep pictures of that depending on where you're at in the litigation ordeal with the Landlord and Insurance Co.

.had to kneel down on an old knee, and hope I could get back up.

Same cold & gloomy look out my back door as yours<_<

Know exactly what you're talking about getting down and a knee but unsure if I can get back up.:(

Glad any thoughts to paint have subsided...The grain really came out with the shellac...

Man, I really like that panel door!:)

That shellac really is nice. Dovetails ain't too shabby, neither. And, as Dave said, like the door. 

As for your weather...ugh. As for the boss's decision...yea!

Holes...yes....haven't seen any bugs....

I air-dried some ash maybe 30 years ago.  It was my impression that whatever bug it was got into the semi-wet wood and once it was dry, left it alone.  I used a lot of it and never had a problem after construction.

 

Emerald Ash Borer is devastating ash in the midwest.   They tunnel in the cambrium (area between sapwood and bark) and kill the tree.   It's sad to go down the expressway and see lots of standing dead ash trees.

Keith, are those dead trees any good for lumber?

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
