I've made a few end grain boards. Not necessarily checkered.
@Boker55 what are you using to seal your cutting boards, are end grain board more likely to absorb than long grain cutting boards?
I just use mineral oil. I reckon they absorb more easily. When I apply to mine I just put a really heavy coat on and let it sit over night. And in the morning it's all soaked in.
Are you still making those cutting boards? I'd be interested in one!
Sadly no I'm not woodworking anymore. I have a couple cutting boards I've kept stashed for last minute gifts if the need ever arose. If you're interested I can send you some pictures. But FYI shipping isn't cheap.
A little table I built out of some old cypress wood from an old barn.
Looks good bro.
First one I've built. It took a little time but i actually enjoyed doing it. I may do a coffee table next.
Back from the dead!! Here's a kitchen install I finished up the other day. While the delivery guys were beating the ever living crap out of the pantry they managed to scratch up a door and that is why it is missing
Sorry for the crappy pictures... I may need to revive my photo bucket again
A small chest I made from white oak if I remember correctly
Great work mate !
So at work we just completed a large medical building that has a chapel. The grand opening is in a couple days. Turns out the building owners wants a large backlit cross for the space.
I had a nice old door I was planning on making a new coffee table out of. But instead I used it for the cross. Solid red oak, over 60 years old. Turned out okay for a job site project.
Shout out to Mr @Jeff Randall
I remember a couple photos you posted on the old forum of a miniature dugout canoe on your coffee table someone had gifted you, could you repost those here?
Looking to craft a similar one from some cypress I have and could use some design reference
It's not a dugout but I will take another pic and post up. Had some friends in Iquitos build it for me since this is the type boat that we travel in on the Amazon.
Thank you sir, much appreciated.
That's the one, thanks @Jeff Randall
Scored this awesome work bench from the old Siemens HQ building in Alpharetta Ga (the company I work for just bought it) The butcher block is pretty beat up and has some broken screws in it. But I think after some time with the sander it will clean up nice.
