Here is a project that I recently finished. In my introduction blog post I posted about making a slab flattening router sled. I used it to flatten a very twisted piece of black walnut limb wood that came from my bosses walnut tree that I cut down after a lightening strike messed it up. I had it milled and it has been air drying for three or four years now. My man cave is going to be a conglomeration of rough cut and live edge wood with black iron pipe. This shelf is a simple design of a slab taken down to 7/8” thick, keeping the live edge and sawing a piece off to make the bottom part. Nothing spectacular in ability but a very pretty piece of wood.

Nice shelf and the stain and finish is beautiful.
If you’re building a clock I have some ideas and a process in my project page.
