    Finished planing the top slab of my fire place mantel build and cutting all of the trim pieces. I assembled as much as I can in the shop prior to fitting it to the wall/corner. I’m hoping to get a coat of stain on it tomorrow and prep for an acoustic panel install coming up this weekend.

    Well let’s see the top Jon. Will you cut the jog onsite?

    Looking good Jon. What color will you stain it?

    I got the first coat of paint on all but one office today. Hope to get the second one on tomorrow.

    @Redwood

    Here is the top…thought I posted it yesterday! And yes, the plan is to rough cut the slab and route the outer most edges in the shop then finish the scribe on site.

    Looking good Jon. What color will you stain it?

    The stain is called American Walnut. I’m matching the color to a as a nearby staircase that is Poplar also. It’s going to be a medium brown when finished.

    Looks great! I wish I had more of a shop space at home to do a couple more fine projects, instead of all the rough carpentry I’m normally doing.

    It’s been a lot of fun working on this project. I was looking forward to making a router planing sled because of the size of the slab. I hope I get to use it again sometime soon…I’ve been looking for a place to pick up live edge slabs for a few unique tables actually.

    From the sounds of things I will be getting to learn the upholstery also. I used a new tool today that put a steel band around a heavy wire and the springs. It was a PITA until I got the hang of it. I made it clear that I wanted to learn upholstery .
    The frames I just finished are sort of like what is in a couch. Looks pretty rough but it all gets covered with fabric and stuff. I will try to get some pictures . I don’t want to run around snapping pictures just yet since I just started.
    @redwood I think my body burned out long ago but I still like what I do.
    4 years and I can retire and work on whatever I want to.

    I hope once you’ve learned a bit more at that job you can post up some videos on upholstery, i’d love to see more info on that, it is something i’ve been interested in seeing.

    Discovered I missed glueing one joint on the shop cart frame so had to put it back in clamps again and started cutting the top. Trying to get my FSN OFA kit setup for doing the 20mm holes for an MFT style top.

    Also worked on a little smartphone stand using some cherry with a walnut accent. Can’t wait to see it with some finish on it.

    nice work. that looks like poplar. it stains up awesome with cherry stain. the grain pattern is almost identical.. as long as the wood doesnt have any greenish hues in it looks just like real cherry

    The holes are for drain pipes, just collecting them to throw out later.

    Now that is a first! I’ve honestly never seen a plumber clean up on a rough in – ever!

    We called it an early day after discovering the helper didn’t know how to get the bubble between the lines. Figured it out AFTER sheeting the roof. Tomorrow we cut out collar ties and cathedral ceiling joists and jack up the ridge of a roof to pull a wall in (hopefully). Fun times.
