Getting a start

Well I finally got started on the project today.

I dug out some Black Ash boards, & ripped , & planed 4 legs to thickness. Then I dug out some Black Walnut for the table top & aprons, & set it aside until tomorrow.

Another tease! Where's the photos? I don't think I've seen black ash before - at least not knowingly.

I'll take some tomorrow. When I went out to my shop today, I wasn't planning on doing anything, just look for boards.
Look at the clocks I made. The Granddaughters Curio Clock, & the Black Ash & Walnut Clock.

OK, I have to admit I am unfamiliar with the term black ash. Help me here.

I stand corrected, nice wood combination. I loved the curio clock when you posted it, and I still do!

Black Ash grows on wetlands in northern MN. The wood isn't black, so I don't know why they call it that.
It's the last tree to get its leaves in the spring, & the first to lose them.
You can see how the 2 woods go together on this clock.

I'm glad to hear that you've begun the process, Dick. That is some great looking wood. I'm looking forward to seeing the pictures, tomorrow.

Your first reply was longer than your blog…what no photos…NO VIDEO…NOT EVEN A SCRATCH AND SNIFF!

Dick, I can't wait to see the contrast in the wood colors and where you use them.

Ok, so who is building a Thorsen table out of Sassafrass anyway? I thought someone was thinking of it. I bet we get one of cedar as well.

Any other scented woods ?

I layed off of my table for a few days, & came up with some fresh ideas. Now i'm going out to My Cave, & make some noise.

I am still in the drawing phase, and looking to see what lumber I have available.

Take a Little Peek.

I took a couple of days off, but it helped me come up with some fresh ideas.

I went out to my shop this afternoon, & made a couple of Templates, one for the aprons, & one for the stretchers.

Now I'm all set to make parts on the router table

Hi Dick;
--is this the start of a massive advertising campaign, before the production wheels start rolling out there in the heartland?....!!!
GODSPEED,
