New guy here saying hello from NE Oklahoma. Long time "carpentry" hobbyist (decks, arbors, outdoor projects) with a recent (since retirement in 2003) interest in furniture-like woodworking. Attached are a few photos of my most recent project at my son's home. This a walnut panel I made to cover a well-worn wood-grain plastic laminate mantle/bookcase top. Not fine woodworking but my son was happy. The last photo shows my ever present workshop companion Bo engaged in his favorite hobby.
I just finished a joewoodworker-inspired vacuum press and my next project will involve veneering. Expect next posts to be either:
1) questions re veneering, or
2) photos of a completed walnut burl small occasional table, or
3) a lightly used vacuum press for sale in the classifieds
This seems like a friendly group and I look forward to learning some new tricks or maybe even helping on rare occasions. Thanks for reading.
