OT - Off Season Wood Project / February Blues

Post by Sandman » Wed Feb 24, 2016 6:38 pm

Hello all,

I try to beat the winter blues with a project or two. This year I decided to make a coffee table for my cottage with raw wood using as few tools as possible (chainsaw/sanders, glue and a paintbrush) with all of the materials coming from my bow hunting property (with the owners permission).

I started with a trunk block of oak and cut several plates - I found out just how difficult it is to cut a straight piece with a chainsaw.

Then the sanding and piecing the top together;

Image

Image

And more sanding - Then the urethane (26 coats in total)

Image

I went for a long walk on my hunting property and found a nice stump for a base. I cleaned it up with more sanding and urethane;

Image

Image

Image

Last night I joined the two for a finished product;

60 days till turkey opener~!

Cheers,
Robin

I'm not showing that to my wife :shock: We live in an 1100 sq. ft. cabin and she would insist on me attempting something similar to go with the log walls.

Yours is a unique and outstanding piece of furniture. Congratulations !
