« Part 35: 1800 x700 Work bench Part 36 of Working with recycled timber series Part 37: AKs ToolMakers Chest Thicknessing Pt 2 »

A friend of mine asked me to make him a tool makers Chest.

He sent me a few photos and in the intrim I accepted the task.

A few months later about Dec 2014 he delivered a bundle of timber for the task.
We spoke about it and I said that I would be able to do nothing with it until 2015, he was OK with that.

A few days later I ran the metal detector over each piece checked everything visually and removed some foreign objects, marked it all up as mag tested and packed it away for the New Year.

The pack was a mixture of all sorts and sizes of what looked to be early Huon or Kauri Pine, quite old and used for school desks and cupboards, tomy knowledge and very hard to get these days.

Along with some common garden variety pine

It had paint and varnish on most of the pieces

I wondered what I had gotten myself in for.

It’s always good to have a challenge Rob. That is when good things happen (and maybe a few problems arise too). A great growing opportunity.
