Woodworks

Makes a change from cutting up logs.

Recommended Posts

Finally finished the base of a dresser.

 

The wood is tulip that was cut, planked and dried by the client. Never rated tulip in the past and have only used it for jobs that were going to be painted but must admit the wood looks nice.

 

Still got to get around to making the top :001_rolleyes:

It does indeed look finished, the "sheen" was a dead giveaway.

Wonderful looking workmanship, my only concern would be the softness of the Tulip wood(=Poplar?) taking marks so easily.

The client knows his woods so I think is aware of this problem. Has been a PITA to not mark the wood during construction and finishing.

 

As long as it is delivered looking smart it becomes what my wife calls a SEP Someone Elses Problem :biggrin:

The wood dry isn't as soft as you think. It's Magnolia family btw but referred to in the States as Rainbow Poplar.

 

Not being flash; I know a bit about it as I lost a 45' specimen - the best tree in the garden - last winter. It didn't go to waste; Steve the 7th Devil has it!
