That is a beautiful desk John.  How did you get the top of it flat?  Hope you get a pic or two of it when it is in place after delivery.

 

I will likely be working on the little corner table I started on this week.  Supposed to be a wet and cold weekend, won't be getting out unless I have to.

Hope so, but don't count on it...St. Louis is just now getting snow and could see 8-12" through tomorrow. I'd guess there will be delays or cancellations.

We're supposed to get some of the same here starting early Saturday morning.

Conference swim finals scheduled for tomorrow at 1:30 PM. That may be at risk since we are under a Winter Storm Warning through 7 AM Sunday. We're in the 6"+ zone so most of the weekend will be either shoveling or blowing snow or both depending on the wind and moisture content factor Spent some of today getting ready. 'Tis the season.

 

Assuming we have church Sunday, youth group is having a chili cook-off after services...would feel bad voting against my grand-daughters but I already know the preacher's son is working up a couple batches of deer chili...gonna' be hard to top that IMO...they need to learn it's not polite to ask how one votes.:rolleyes:

That's just a fantastic desk, John. About 80" long? How wide? No stain, too. Love it. Did you spline the top? What woods did you use? The legs look like white oak. Those black (dowels?) are a nice touch.

We'll be taking our guests to catch their plane back to St. Louis tomorrow. So, I can get some shop time until the 21st when the next ones get in. But, they'll be in Tucson. Which means that we'll be making a few trips down there and, they plan to come up here, too. My tools will just have to adjust to the loneliness.

 

Lew, look at the first picture, the lags look like popular to me. The other pictures look like oak. I am thinking he knows something that he is keeping to his self.  :WonderScratch:

Was going to trial fit an arc shaped mantle tomorrow but Grandpa Dave is sending snow my way.  I have to set up a new computer for my sister in the morning but free the rest of the weekend.

I try to spread the wealth...no need to hoard it.

I agree! Fred Hargis is due east of me about an hour.

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.
