Default A few pics

Hi again, been awhile since i have posted. My wife and I decided we needed a place to hang our coats and somewhere to take off the muddy boots. Since I'm kind of new at this kind of wood working it took me awhile to figure it out. Made a few mistakes but they're not to noticeable. Its primarily made out of fir so I could start over with out making to expensive fire wood. Next project is a router table and cabinet. The table I am using now is a old black and decker made out of tin. It vibrates to the point of making the stiles to wide for the rail. It also sags a bit in the middle. I plan on making the table aprox. 24" X 40". Would I mount the router in the middle or to the front side of the table?
I have to also thank all in this forum for all the years of knowledge. I have learned a lot reading this forum and it is so much easier then running to the public library or trying to find a answer in a magazine.

Well, you may have some old outdated equipment, but you sure know how to use it!! I'd trade half my modern gee-whiz stuff if I could produce something that nice.
Say, do the folks at The Depot still serve blackened salmon? I told the owner of the place twenty years ago about blackening salmon and he started doing it. Everybody loved it. But then.....I knew that!! Lived in Missoula for a few years. And Lolo. And the Valley. Got too busy for me.

Excellent looks real good. I agree with Fatz about being able to make something like that, How did you finish it?

You can always see the signs of a good woodworker, he places the pieces with the nicest grain and figure right in front. Great job.

Thanks, Hey Birch, it has been about 20 or more years since I have been to the Depot. More of a Double Front type if you know what I mean. I know what you mean buy getting a little to busy, 40 years ago there were fewer people in the whole city then what there is in a block now. I finished the tree with minwax polycrylic.
