Project Information

So for the last 8 months or so I've been a little too busy with my latest project to work on anything else in the shop…

These latest twins were built with 20 finger-joints, 20 toe-nails, 17.5 inches and 18.25 inches of material and were around a light 12 lbs total.

Looks like I finished them a little too early as one is still in the shop. But I'm sure I'll have her finished and with her twin soon.

Their normal color is similar to cherry… maybe dark maple… but when angered they turn a deep mahogany, perhaps even purpleheart! Figure and grain of the material were decided upon months ago.

I hope now that these projects are (almost) finished I can get back to my other projects sitting idle in the shop. (My friends and fellow woodworkers say "no") Ah well.

Well done, well constructed… you're wife should be pleased with the result! ??? Nicely written, too. Congratulations… but if you even think this project is done… think again… your're still working raw materials… a lot of honing and the finish work will take years… Yes, as the others have said-one of the more memorable and enjoyable projects on LJ's.

Congrats to you and the wife and welcome to the newest LumberJocks. Good luck with those idle projects, but don't worry those two will bring you plenty more.

Sleff this is about as nice a project as I have ever seen. They both are gorgeous. Enjoy them while you can because in a short time they tend to morph into teenagers and then your work will really begin. :)

Congratulations to you and your wife. I just hope that you can manage to find some occasional spare time to generate some sawdust but, with these two "projects" we won't hold it against you if your woodworking projects are on hold for awhile.

congratulations… I'm pretty certain that you might want to reverse the 'who did the work' part of the topic… though. ;)

I agree with above. These projects are just getting started but you will enjoy this work more than any other. In a few years, hopefully, we'll see some projects they worked on.

Congratulations!
