Well, the Christmas Gift Exchange list is out.....I have to find a present for my Grand daughter-in-law...... Bought about 25bft of Quarter Sawn Ash, today.... There are 11 boards in that stack..average width is just under 6"....all are around 3/4" thick. Hmmmmm, how about a Blanket/ Hope Chest build? Frame and panel? Or maybe a "6 board" style? been a while since I built a chest....maybe see what I can come up with? Give things about a week, or so...while the Single Brain Cell Sketch Up works things up into a "Plan" have to work around t
Well...yard was mowed last night, just before it got too dark to see....came into the house...and not a single cold beer to be found... This morning...had a road trip to do with the Boss. Dropped her off at where she wanted to go....motored on down the highway...left turn at the old family graveyard.... Did a little wheel & deal......24 bf of Ash, with the Boss having to clean the fellow's house ( his "Boss" is away for a while) Stopped at Wall E World on the way home...Boss needed a couple things, I needed to correct the "No Beer" part. Got home..too
Plank that is 4/4 x 13" x 49" ? Maybe a Five Drawer Chest of Drawers? Two of the "five" would be half width drawers at the top. Frame and panel sides....raised panels. I have a decent supply of 4/4 Maple I cut rip to make the four posts....have a supply of 3/4" for the panels and drawer fronts...plenty ( I hope ) of thinner Poplar for drawer sides. May buy a sheet of 1/4" plywood for the bottoms of the drawers....and the back of the case.. May add some of the Black Walnut as edging for the top? maybe use it as the "dividers" between the drawers?
OK, rehabs are done for now.....have a small stack of thin Poplar boards... Hiding in a corner for a reason? Mainly 1/2" thick 1x8s and 1x10s,with a couple 4/4 slabs thrown in. Why are they hiding? Because there is this stack of Cherry.. Lots of 4/4 x 6 and 4/4 x 8......Some of them are 6/4 pieces.. Some of the shorter stuff is 14"+ wide Single Brain Cell Sketch Up will be working overtime.....on this stash from Charles Neil at the Shindig' scrap pile. Might take a while..stay tuned for updates...
