I been going pretty strong, had alot to get done, and we have a finishing class end of the week, still working on the Demi Lune tables, been working on the string inlay and bell flowers for the legs and aprons, will have some pictures later , been working on doing them CN style, meaning fast and effective, so after cutting and chiseling, and sand shading, and so forth, I thought Humm ? ,,,, so get me some 1/16 straight router bits, my router guides, pulled out the scroll saw, and commenced, took a bit of time, fiddling and tweaking, and getting the jest of the thing, but I got it, I can use a router to clean out the inlay and then also cut the veneer, sweet, so now 100 or so bell flowers and the string inlay doesn’t seem so daunting, he he he…. maybe a little out of the box, but hey, once ya got it, ya got it…. like anything else, you’re not sure of, just dive in and stay with it until you master it, works for me !
Today, I will inlay several different style of the bell flowers, and see which one the clients likes and then its rock and roll and wrap these tables up,,,,, so stay tuned,
We have asked how many would like to do the Demi Lune in the mastering woodworking show, havent had alot of responses, so it would be nice to hear from you.
Speaking of the MWW show, here are some finial choices, we will be looking at to see what you think should go on the cherry slant front secretary , so even if you’re not a show subscriber, let me know your opinion on the finials, the bottom “block” is called a capital, the middle , we will call a finial base and of course the flame, on the ball-shaped base, the flame is 1/2 shorter and a bit ‘fatter’ Than the cup shaped one,,, so let me know what ya think
