    Back panel take two

    You might remember my earlier resawing post; http://familywoodworking.org/forums/...ead.php?t=4442
    I was able to finish up the panel this weekend. The 12 piece panel measures 53.75 X 38.75 X 1/2" thick. The joints are tongue & groove.
    I was able to get a nice grain matching when I laid out the boards. The camera doesn't do the oak fleck & rays justice. Hopefully I値l be able to pop them come finishing time.

    Those boards have come out beautifully. Exciting project in itself, with or without the elephants!

    I REALLY like the way that looks. something else to put on the list that I can do with my HD16 BS doing re-saws....

    The old silver sander is really cool also !! What is it ? Old ?

    I can already see quite a bit of fleck in the pic and it's looking real good. Cant wait to see it with some finish on it if there's more there.

    Thanks guys. I still have drawers and some trim to make and then finish sanding/scraping.
    I知 not planning on putting the finish on until this fall or winter when I can control the temperature a little better.
    Bartee, the sander is a PC 505. It痴 only a few years old, I think it was a special edition or something. It has zero dust collection but it痴 a kick butt sander!

    Looks great Bruce. Hope you will place the piece so that the backside is somewhat visible - too pretty to hide
    Don't believe everything you think!

    Thanks Jesse. I知 not so anal that I would go to this trouble for something unseen. The panel will be visible through the glass paneled doors. (I hope)

    Larry you were right the Woodmaster is sweet but I still do the final sanding by hand...
