Default Woven Walnut

I made the mistake of playing a Wood Whisperer video on the tv while my wife was in the room. 🙂
So now she's got one of her own.

Very nice, Joe, very nice! How thin did you make the slats? What finish did you use?

Thanks David, a little under 1/8" slates and mineral oil and wipe on poly. Assembly was a pain! 🙂

I'll bet! Probably took more than two hands at some point, I would imagine.

Great project. Clothes hamper with air circulation. Well done.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Nice. I have drawn up plans for something very similar. I take it you didn't finish the slats before assembly. Was it hard to get the wipe-on finish in every little nook and cranny?

Measure twice, cut once and CROSS OUT THE WRONG MARKS.

I wonder if you could lay the slats in position over and under the center divider and between cauls at the ends and then pull them flat enough by clamping the cauls to get them into the grooves on the corner boards?

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Did you mortise the thin vertical slats? That is a pretty, pretty piece of patient woodworking.
