Yes please.Dodge":n6rp9js5 said:Just started a nice little project today
A Davenport in Burr Brown Oak, got the basic carcase for the top made today - will do a mini WIP as I go along if you want me too.
In that case Rog, you'll have to work at Mailee speed 'cos we expect this finished tomorrow! :lol: - RobDodge":2xhzlf4f said:No problem folks, not at the workshop today but will be back in tomorrow so will keep the thread going as a WIP
Same question from me!jss":3753c162 said:I love your WIPs, Roger - I learn a lot. I'm quite a fan of the Davenport, although it wouldn't look right in my 1980s house! A few questions about the mitres - I find them hard to get right. Do you have a mitre trimmer or a shooting-board, or are these straight off the saw? Those strap clamps look handy - where are they from? I find that even if I get them bang-on, one of the biggest problems for mitres has to be shrinkage/expansion of the timber with seasonal moisture - slight gapping at the internal or external corners if the wood moves. I attempt to counteract this by bringing the timber indoors and leaving it for a few weeks to try to acclimatise it - not so easy when you are working for clients! To what extent do you worry about moisture content in a professional workshop and what tips do you have for storing and handling the timber in this regard?
