Just wanted to share this slideshow.
This was one of the more enjoyable builds I got to do.
The main focus is on the columns.
The final product is not my taste but it’s what they wanted.
The wood being used is Cumala

Hope you enjoy it.

I’m not trying to start a thread on fun builds,
but feel free to post anything you enjoyed building if you have something to share.

Very well done, LeeRoy. Nice technique with the router sled and the profiles. As an aside, you are all set up to make congas now.

I like the look of the wood not the gold. Columns look good. Made that jig for this project or already had it?

The video was to short…
Time between the pics was too short…
No tunes…(what the hell is up with that?)

Can I have you’re radial arm saw?

Oh ya…nice build!

Nice work, LeeRoy. Too bad you didn’t use hide glue though.

Since you didn’t, I’m forced to flag this post as offensive.

Thanks Devin

Thanks corelz, I made the jig just for the columns.

Thank You MrWolfe, appreciate the subscribe, although I don’t get what that’s all about.
I’m not trying to publish a channel or whatever they call it.. lol

Thanks Steve,

Thanks AG, I spill a lot of glue, but in this case it was the perfect amount.
Nobody see’s inside and outside got planed off. And, there not coming apart. ;)

Tony, first thanks
second, The title says short slideshow. If I made the frames longer, I would have to change the title
and no one wants to see a long slideshow.
Plus there is this:

third…...No :)

Thanks Rich,
I tried to hide the glue the best I could.
Flag away, you wouldn’t be the first…. :(

I built these about sixteen years ago almost exactly the way Leroy did except I turned the glue-ups on my lathe.
I wasn’t using hide glue then but if I had been I wouldn’t likely feel that tiny raised glue line every time I run my hand over them. Maybe I’ll rip ‘em out and make new ones …... with marquetry! :-)

Leroy, .... Really nice work!

Those are really nice Paul.
Would expect nothing less though.
Nice color too. Must have been some custom Paul mixture…

Thanks for posting, always like to see your work.

I am not sure if you guys inspire me to do more woodworking or make me feel defeated before I start. Very impressive LeeRoyMan and Paul too!
