Looks like your hard at work with the Vcarve Inlay and Epoxy
resin. Once you start it's hard to stop doing it (don't ask how I know).
Is the Aztec one also resin inlay?

Re: Walnut Live Edge

Steve... What I did to attach the table to the leg assembly was to layout the holes in the legs to matching holes on the bottom of the table. I drilled pilot holes thru the legs just into the table bottom to get reference holes to match up the table. I then drilled holes in the table bottom to accep...

Re: Walnut Live Edge

Thanks for the comments... The joints that holds the center together for the legs to attach to are two holes on all four sides of the center post that were milled flat on the cnc bed in a jig to space them correctly on all sides equally spaced. The legs were then milled in a horizontal jig off the f...

Walnut Live Edge

I had sawed a walnut crotch from a tree a friend of mine cut about 4 years ago and got 5 nice 6/4 slabs. So recently I was looking for designs to make a coffee table. I wanted a natural and organic look to the table so I combined things I liked about the different tables I saw and came up with my ow...

Re: Puzzle fun

Todd...
What a fantastic puzzle in 3d. Never gave it much thought but now
that I see it, it would be another degree of challenge with the piece
height. I like the finish you used makes it stand out but yet a natural
look.

Re: Some Steampunk

Mister Dave___!!!! That is about as funky cool as it gets !!! I really like the design and lay out. The raised and lowered levels really add to the overall picture. I think you absolutely nailed it. Pieces of art like that really get the juices flowing and make you think about things a person can do...

Woody---
I was waiting for the finish and the finish was well worth the wait.
It turned out beautiful as I thought it would with the stunning grain
pattern in the wood, it just has a flow unto itself. A fantastic end
to great project

Re: A wonderful Christmas Present

Very beautiful carve, the maple is very nice with the
flow of the grain pattern. Nice selection of the board.
It seems the light wood really makes the carving
stand out.

Re: Rustic Xmas

Thanks guys for the nice words on my Christmas project. Joe---It's ironic that you saw the profile in the river between the two states. I never really noticed that before. When I finished the sign I sent a picture to my long time high school friend who just happens to be an enrolled member of one of...

My daughter and her family moved to Minnesota last year. My wife informed me that her and the kids were missing the Homestead farm here in Wisconsin. So dad went to his lumber stash up in the old dairy barn to find the wood I wanted to use for the Christmas present for my daughter. First was the old...
