There's both ends of the spectrum above - a cool juxtaposition of raw and refined.

Yeah, because this was a donation I just used what I had on hand. The legs were left over from a demonstration I did for a woodworkers fair, and the quilted birch boards had been in storage for about 10 years. The inlay at the top of the legs was resawn from a birch burl I saved from a firewood pile.

It looks much more harmonious with a veneered box.



The fully realized design that I had done previously was much more effective. It was an actual "Millennium Box" time capsule (sealed 2000 AD)for the State of NH and looked identical to this pic but with the key behind glass detail and a bit thinner aprons atop the legs.

Maybe you misunderstood my comment - my product being the raw and yours the refined.

Whatever...

The second box accomplishes the challenge of outdoing the first. I hope I have the time and skills at some point to come close to your level of craftsmanship. I know I'll have lots of raw material in the woodpile...

Yo Edge, is your time capsule somewhere in Concord where I can check it out next time I'm in town?

Warbler, I had misinterpreted you. Thanks for clarifying.

Brandon, I have no idea where the box is now. I think it was supposed to tour around for a while, but I imagine they got bored with that a d found a permanent display, I just don't know where.

You people on this thread shine.. Just plain shine. I love all the different sorts of craftsmanship.

And Brandon.. a good hardwood floor is to be cherished. And so is the workman who installs it.

Full scale drawing of the shell marquetry and the maple veneer, backed with a layer of masking tape so the thin cross-grain sections don't split. It's like taping together potato chips.

Boy, that is some really nice wood up there. We have some good oak and cedar but not really the ability to season it properly...


Anyway, I've been meaning to post up 'cause there is much building happening. I'll just start with this:

From the look of it, I'm not so much building as fortifying...

I've just finished building my raised-bed garden utilizing recycled lumber and filling the beds with a mixture of organic compost, topsoil, and mushroom compost. With the irrigation now in, the next step will be planting.

The site is a recycled cat cage that had a connection through a window so the previous tenant's cat could access the outdoors but was protected from local predators by a huge enclosed cage. It's this cage that will keep the garden plants safe from deer, turkeys and above-ground herbivores.

I first put down a weed cloth layer to keep nearby tree roots from invading the garden then a layer of hardware cloth to keep the gophers out! Then I cut the used lumber into pairs of equal length and made the beds by attaching the boards with galvanized tape.

Then I filled the beds with a custom mixture of growing media.

Lastly, I installed a drip-like irrigation system.

Banquo- love the drill holder. From my (seemingly failed) attempt at an ER collet holder I'd suggest putting flats on it somewhere to allow a wrench to be applied when the drill gets stuck. Seems that was one of the issues with the prototype I sent to Minerals, so figured I'd pass it along.

Muy moderne- trust me, a couple of gentle knocks with a small block

Yes, that is bamboo plywood - but solid, i.e., made up of little strips
all glued together. Muy expensivo! Oh, and the 'studs' are 8 quarter
beech milled down.
