boy, why did I choose ash. What was I thinking?
AFter making the 3rd or 4th template,(just couldnt seem to get it right), cutting thick ash down to thickness then rough cutting on bandsaw is not anywhere as easy as the mahogany/sapele chairs I made.
As soon as I put the first leg on the router table to trim to shape, the ryobi bit fell apart. The guide bushing flew off and after 40 minutes of looking for it, I gave up and bought a new Amana bit today.
Very slow start. Very slow. I dont have any furniture grade thick ash, so Im weeding through the "trash ash" and cutting around all the knots and bad spots. Why did I choose ash.
