  1. A friend of my was recently redoing a bartop in his man cave and ask me to do some CNC work on the slab he was going to use. The slab was 10’ long, 27” wide and 2” thick. This was one big slab to slide into my CNC. Since there was no straight edge I had to establish some type of straight line to be able to line up the three images he wanted cut into the slab. With a center set, I could then line up the different images on the center line to start the milling. First up was “Blue Blood” on the left side. Then slide this monster through the machine to center the next part. And then one one more move to put the last image into the slab. I used vCarve Desktop to do each section. A screen shot shot of the wild cat. So so he was going to pour Blue Epoxy in each of the images and sand it flat then pour self leveling clear Epoxy over the whole top. He sent me a video of the finished bar top. I did a screenshot so excuse the play button in the middle of the picture. Turned out really nice, he should enjoy this for a long time.
  2. I’m not sure if I ever posted this or not. If I did then just know my memory is going as I get older and over look me! We did this complete office out of Hickory Slabs. The desk has a live live edge on one side and is two slabs glued together. The ends were made of thick pieces of Hickory and we put metal conduit in the middle and painted them black. The shelves were all slabs with live edge. Used the conduit as supports painted black. They painted the wall behind the shelves black. The black wall really let the light Hickory slabs stand out. The desk was finished with self leveling Epoxy. I really love the rug they chose to bring it all together. A really nice custom office.
  3. I make wood slab benches. I had this neat lookin slab that was not so strong. I like my stuff to be tough. So I made an 1" inlay in the open side of this slab. Then I made a tree out of it. This will be the back slab part of a bench. Inlay part is walnut.
  4. Now that the little box is done, time to start on the other $1 slab..... This is the bigger of the three pieces from that one slab. Measured out at just under 38" long. I used the bandsaw to slice off the bark side ( most of it) 1/4" blade isn't the best for this sort of thing. With COPD, no way in... I'm doing this with a handsaw....I'd be there all day, huffing and a puffing....I'll let the bandsaw do that. Need to buy a wider blade, I think. Anyway, with the bark piece gone, this is still Depending on where I measure, just about 5" wide. Thickness? Needs jointed, but right now it is 2-1/4 thick. As for the other two sections.... They are a little bit shorter. Not sure IF this is another slab of Cherry or maybe a walnut. Not too bad, for a dollar bill. Not sure about the board feet in this slab, yet. Single Brain Cell Sketch Up is working on a plan of some sort.....not sure what it will be......leaning towards a table of some sort....might involve the lathe,,,,may have to dig the lathe out...Hmm...still have a bunch of "leftovers" from that little box.....accent stuff? We'll see how it goes...stay tuned to this Batty Channel...
  5. Finally get to deliver this today and exchange it for an older model!
  6. Or was it Gene who introduced a table and benches folks could build or buy and not too much work to complete the set up. Its always cheaper in Las Vegas. This little set was on sale close to 8,000.00 american in the forum at Caesars Palace. I ask if they would knock off a little since it had a crack or two showing here and there. Young man, she said, those divine exquisite cracks were put there on purpose. Those are what established the price.!!........So I said, so what if a person sits down and a crack happens to close up on a persons soft cheeks?? Who would we sue???? With a raised eyebrow, she left and came back with the manager. Seems as the price started out at 11,000 american.... Lots of things in Vegas stays in Vegas! Kinda like the saying goes. That episode reminded me when I had a furniture repair- refinish shop in Lubbock. This was when the phone numbers had prefixes before the numbers like SH, PO, SW-54890 and one more I can't remember, with the SW letters it let people know, if anyone really cared, of such things, let the caller know these where the people in south west Lubbock who owned the largest priced homes so they were special and wanted to be treated as such.... I finally decided to try and forget that side of town when I was returning calls made to my repair, refinish business... They were the ones that was impossible to satisfy................... I just don't know why you can't make this wood look and feel like co-co boly just because I bought particle board by mistake and I don't want my neighbors thinking I am stupid.. Why does Las Vegas remind me of my past, not a clue. Maybe its people stuffing quarters in those machines thinking one more quarter and I'll be fixed for life.......or not.
  7. Every now and then something really cool gets posted to our Facebook page by a friend or a member. @Reid Smith posted this wonderful video on our page. And after I watched this all get out cool video I researched more on this gentleman by the name of Chris, and his YouTube channel is really good, full of information both educational and full of ideas in woodworking. Chris specializes in human power woodworking. And he has a very creative flair. Many of you may remember Chris as the fellow who built that anniversary gift for his wife, the long trestle table, it was a viral video that gained international attention. Well this is the same Chris. Below is another video I absolutely love watching, and here is the link to Chris's YouTube channel at Chops with Chris. Check it out, you'll find yourself sitting and watching many of his videos, they are that interesting. This is one cool video! Watch for the quick time portion near the beginning, it speeds up.
