Prompted By Howsitwork Ian
« on: November 11, 2016, 12:33:37 AM »
Thanks to Ian aka howsitwork for the pm.

No Ian not completley under the  :whip: just flat out with a major wood project a request by LOML although I new we needed one. This is an out door setting for us, family and visitors 2mLx 900W x750H for the table all Murbau still in progress about 1/2 way. Bench seat completed 1900Lx450Hx370W

Along with still sorting out the house and workshop in our new digs in SE-QLD tahst South East Queensland. Its hard going from a single garage to a double and the jobs seem to grow in size and requests LOL.

Good to see you back on the forum. I stand by what I said about SWMBO cracking the whip. :bow:

Nice work mate. Just need to make a hang on side table for the bench end to accommodate a tinny or two ?

By the way if you're looking for sympathy - wait until you get  to go from a double garage down to a single, then you'll wince! :smart:

Merry Christmas Ginger.
      Well, as you realize Christmas is all done and dusted here down under. Only 365 days till the next'n.  :lol:
  Merbau eh? That will be one heavy and solid top and you can dance on it with gay abandon, specially if you have used, (as I do cos I have some left over), a flooring grade varnish.
  How do I know Merbau is heavy you may ask? Well, I made a model Murray river paddle steamer (My avatar) from Merbau and Tasmanian Oak. Heavy as, but the timber was off cuts from helping my son do his pool deck = free, I like free. Oh, and many of the real ones were of RedGum, also a heavy timber. So sort of fits.
Good job, enjoy the table and what ever food is place upon it.  :med:

That looks really nice. Wood can be sometimes very comforting to work with and sometimes it is a character building experience.
