    Sun is out in Glasgow today , A bloody miracle for this time of Year .

    Just a little SBS on some wood and how to get a finish

    First wood is Panga -Panga : rough cut " off saw " Ie bark cut off and rough sawn, squared Quarter sawn IMG_0572.JPG IMG_0575.JPG sanded to 600 grit starting with 80G ,and working up the scale .

    Second wood is a rather nice bit of Scottish rippled oak .again worked thru the Grits with first coat of oil
    IMG_0577.JPG sanded IMG_0581.JPG oiled
    Next is Rippled Ash , this can be a bit bland on some sides so it is stained to a Jacobean Oak colour to bring enhance the grain .

    Purple Heart , sanded then oiled IMG_0594.JPG

    Some shots of the workshop and what you need IE Chop saw, Belt sander ,Pillar drill and all sorts of hand tools , there is also a Table saw out of site at the moment .
    As you can see this is as chaotic as my modelling bench :D

    Very nicely done Ron. Thanks for sharing it my friend. I would like to ask you something. In order to sand the bases you use the belt sander? Isn't this a bit dangerous? I mean you may sand a side more or press more than it's needed, so you ruin the base.
    I'm looking for a sufficient way to sand the bases so I have all the sides the same and straight.

    I'm currently working with a palm sander. After many bases, I can handle it pretty good, but still looking for something better...and maybe faster.

    Nice to see, and no fingers in the sawdust.

    Thinking about it, and relating to your other thread, you might have supplied your, SWMBO with all the tools needed for the disposal of your body?
