    Default Woodworking

    I was looking around for a wood project thread to post this in and didn't find one. So thought I'd start this.

    Wanted to show this chair to Jay, as he is quite a furniture artist himself.

    From Kevin D: "Here's a picture of the Maserati Rocker that I made. I sculpted this chair out of bubinga, leopardwood, maple and ebony."

    Jaysus! That thing is wild! I wonder if it is strong enough to sit in? Maybe not for me but for a regular person.

    thanks Jim! Don't have the slightest why it didn't work for me...usually always does.

    with that much glue I'd say it's pretty sturdy...just not too sure about the little "crack aligner" in the seat.

    I saw that in another woodworking forum... a bit wild for my taste, but what workmanship!

    Met with a friend this morning who will bring his crew in to do the foundation (ICF) for my new wood shop and an addition to the house.
    This afternoon an excavator comes by to look at the job. I took two trees down for him at his riverfront home (crane job) and didn't charge him, so we could swap for the earth moving... can't wait to have a shop again.

    I saw that. Just dont swivel in your seat! That is a beauty of a chair, I hope Jay sees it. I would love to hear his take.

    I like a laminate look. Gun stocks look good laminated, and are supposed to be much more stable than straight walnut.

    Ibanez and Peavy used to make neck-through basses. Those are pretty too. I guess you can still order one from Carvin.

    Whats the story with that one Peter? Looks gooooooooooood!

    I gigged around the state with a dude that had a Peavy Cirrus 5 string. It was not shiny but it played nice. Neck through.

    My go to right now is a G&L but no neck through sadly. I wish I had bought that Tobias 6 string long ago...........ARGGGHHH!
