    Rolf, as you can see in my pictures, I don't have a whole lot of space myself.
    It's probably a good thing that I'm building this at 2/3 scale!

      I spent the last couple of weeks re-sawing, planing and scrollsawing a bunch of parts. Now it's time for some assembly. IMG_20171206_161508982.jpg

        I am always in awe of these types of projects and anyone who attempts one, much less finishes them and I see you have done a number of them. The time and patience required alone, much less the skill level required keep me from them. You have created a number of beautiful pieces and this one looks to be another one in the making. Thanks for sharing your work in progress.

          Thanks Melanie for the great review.
          This was supposed to be a project that would take me well in to my retirement, but I've had so much fun, I'll probably complete it before then.

            My neck and shoulders hurt just looking at all of that cutting.

              Speechless. Truly amazing. Rolf, I have used white oak and it is much friendlier to work with than oak or red oak. The grain is tighter but cuts like cherry. I really like using it.

                The red oak is working fine for everything that's just under 1/8" and thicker. Anything less than that I'm using cherry. Kind of dicey planing it that thin though.

                  Got a question for you, how do you put a finish on a project that is so detailed?

                    Trackman, I'm not sure yet. Got any suggestions? What ever I do, it'll probably be a year or so down the road.

                      I would think multiple sprayed thin coats from many angles.

                        If you really want a finish on everything, I think you would have to do it piece at a time as you assemble, and tape off the glue edges. It would be as big of a job as cutting the pieces.

                          Thinking I'll try some BLO on some smaller projects first. Never used it before, but maybe take a small 1/2" brush and start at the top and work down coating everything I can get to.

                            That is one where you tell Kevin we really don't need to know until at least 6 months after it happened. There are lots of crazy people out there....

                            I really don't know what to say about that--other than I think I tried to treat "that" guy for chest pains 35 years ago in a mobile home (trailer).
                            Glad Kevin got out with nothing more than a great story for the guys back at the water cooler.

                            You're absolutely right -

                            Last week, a lady who had picked one of my cards at the downtown show, called and asked if she could come out and look at my bowls. She came an hour later, walked up to my latest bowl and asked the price. I told her and she whipped a check on me. About the third...

                            When I figured out what you were doing, I figured you would have to remove a ton of wood to get the movement to sit correctly. Really like the numbers. Any guess on weight?
