Cool!!!! Pics we like pics. Laughing!!!!
Even though this cedar is dead, I'm sure there's still moisture in them. How are you going to address that issue? Mill then let dry? I know dry cedar usually has a low MC than green, just curious. Is it aromatic cedar?
Edit: lamp looks really cool.
When do you deliver it to costumer?

At last. Now that's what I'm talking about! The finished thing top to bottom. But wait ..... Where is your model to show or off?

Nice work Tommie, looking forward to your next build

Yeah was rather uncomfortable. Fortunately not allergic but needles from the quack mocked me around for a bit.

Well I did tell the customer that there was some risk of it shrinking.. But I think that has already happened because you saw how tight the key shelf fit , well when I finally got around to attaching it it didn't fit as tight. There was a good 1/8 inch opening on either side. I fixed this by mixing sanding dust with epoxy and filling in the spaces. Anyway as far as aromatic...? It does smell purty dang good. And he is supposed to show up at 10 am tomorrow to pick it up. On a side note I thought it might be a good idea to start a portfolio of all my finished projects.

Yea a portfolio would be nice. You can put them in your album for all to see. I like when I can click on a member and see his/her work. It's nice to see.
