    The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Dave, I've never worked with pecky Bolivian walnut before. In fact until I got a flyer email, I had never even heard of it. It's pretty brutal on tool edges because of the gum pockets but it finishes so much better than American walnut. The wood itself is pretty easy to work. It's the hardened black gum that causes difficulty. But that's what makes it so interesting. I bought a Dewalt 735 planer about a year ago, to replace a Delta portable I had for about 20 years. This wood brought the 735 to its knees and I had to send it in for service. Dewalt then lost it and sent me a new one. I've got that for sale now, since it's in an unopened box. It's a great planer but can't handle the 13" capacity unless you're taking passes at 1/100". Tuesday, its replacement arrives.

    Finally finished the entertainment center. Okay, there are still a few little things to finish, like finding something to hold the LED strip so I can get rid of those clamps at the top. The Blum slides do a great job of holding the albums. Handles for the drawers and doors TBD. I was surprised at how nicely the WB finish looked. I've tried other WB finishes on walnut and it looked blah.

    Okay! Stop demanding to see what I did with that resawed cedar! Here! Sheesh! http://julimorcreations.com/2220/GrtRm/EntCtr/EntCtr_037.jpg

    And another thing, if I am to stick my nosey nose into other people's business, Laguna's 14/12 is now selling on Woodcraft for $990. I know nothing about it other than it has a 14" resaw capacity. I have an 18" bandsaw that has a max of 10" of resaw. With a sharp blade it will resaw anything, as long as I have the patience of a saint. So do your due diligence before buying. But I have to add, I just resawed a bunch of 2x6 cedar boards into thirds and it was almost fun. And I did say, "almost".

    Jaager, if you do a lot of resawing you might want to look into the Laguna Resaw King blade. I tried Wood Slicer (good results but dulls very quickly) and the Lenox Woodmaster CT before going to the Resaw King. The CT is carbide tipped and cuts quickly but results, when really sharp, are good but it doesn't take long for that to deteriorate to so-so. I've resawed boards up to 9" wide and 10' long with both the Lenox CT and Resaw King and the RK is simply better. IMHO....

    Today I brought the cabinets into the spray booth and put the final coat on them. After clearing them out, I started setting up for the flat pieces, doors, drawer fronts, tops. Then the clouds started rolling in and before I knew it, it was raining in my spray booth. Did I mention my spray booth is my driveway?

    Whoever my ancestors might be, they forgot to include me in their will so I'll forget to remember them. 🤭

    For some reason I can't help but think those companies are gathering DNA info to sell to whoever finds use for it. Maybe it's the knowledge of what Facebook, Google, the NSA, et al has done that makes me a skeptic.

    Dave, I had the same kind of thing a few years ago. Went to the doc's not feeling too well, she checked me out and next thing I know three paramedics walk into the examining room dragging a cart and gurney. Strapped me to the gurney and wheeled me out to an ambulance. Lots of tests, hours of waiting and at the end of it all they said they could find nothing wrong. Only thing I could figure was I was under a lot of stress at the time. Dove into my Zen books, warded off stress any way I could and so far no repeats. Hope you're feeling better now.

    Today I finished the last bit of wood work on the entertainment center. All I need now is a helper to drag the big pieces outside so I can spray a finish on them. I made three shelves for each sides. The black panels on the center doors are speaker cloth. The woofer will sit inside that cabinet. Once it's finished and bolted together I'll install LED strip lighting along the top inside.

    That is one great video! "Gimme a little background music and I'll be jammin' on my paddle!" It's kind of like the cigar box guitars only you can git down the crik better with this one.

    It's the bottom of an entertainment center. It's going into the corner where the TV is. On either side will be album drawers and in the middle is where electronics and the bass speaker will go, and whatever else ends up there. Above the album drawer sections will go book shelves.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
