Designer maker student @woodchuckchick used both carving chisels and rasps to cut the leg joints.

Here's a #throwbackthursday fitting a massive 6 1/2" solid maple workbench top onto the sliding dovetails in the legs! This was about a week ago today when I was up in the cooler parts of the country in Minnesota. Now it's back to Texas where temps are trying to push triple digits! Although this bench was patterned after the popular Roubo workbench it was upsized on a grand scale and is as solid as a rock. Look at my previous posts to see completed pics of the bench. Would you like a bench this big? 👍👎

So a little while ago there was an Illinois Instagram woodworkers meetup at the local @rockler_woodworking... as I was leaving, @mf_woodbutcher gave me a thick triangular walnut offcut, that was all squared on the edges and told me to make something good. Here's what it became... gave it a pseudo-live edge and turned it into an edison bulb lamp. I think my future grandma-in-law will love this thing when I visit this weekend. 😄

Most of you are woodworkers, but for those who aren't, here is how curved details are machined. First the shape is roughed out on the bandsaw, as close to the line as one can without going over. Then the template is attached to the wood with double sided tape (I use carpet rape which works great). The router bit has a bearing that registers against the template and cuts the curve in the wood. Time spent in perfecting the template pays dividends. Done deal. The template is then reused as needed and saved for future projects.

Made completely from hardwood offcuts destined for trash/firewood

We wrapped up our bookmatched ebonized Maple C-Tables today and they are heading to their forever home tomorrow morning! We put a lot of extra care in wood selection sometimes to our own demise. These two tops were cut from 1 large 8/4 big leaf maple slab sourced from @wineglassmill and resawn on a @woodmizersawmills by my friend Scott at @ironwood_mills. We ebonized the top using Transtint dye and finished with @generalfinishes Arm R Seal gloss mounted to custom steel chrome powdercoat C frames. #woodgrain #customfurniture #handmade #furnituremaker #furnituredesign #houzz #ctable #couchtable #ebonized #maplewood #finewoodworking #woodandsteel #modernphoenix #localfirstaz #modernism

Progress report on the tree bookshelf. All the grooves are cut! Tomorrow I go on vacation to Minnesota for 5 days though, so this is likely my last woodworking related post until I return.
