Artist’s Eye

So, I’m gluing together this counter top and thought I’d share a bit. ☺

Choosing pieces to go together. I cut down a pretty healthy stack of lumber to produce all these pieces, so I have to pick and choose the ones that best fit my idea of what this should look like. 

No, that’s not it. 

Better. 

Okay, I’m satisfied. Time to glue. 

Ugh! One board oriented wrong and somehow I made it too short. All that time and energy, only to make it wrong. 😣

Okay, so I just passed time practicing on a, uh, coffee table? Sure, I’ll just make this one into a table. 

Take 2. Action!

Alright, making sure it’s the right size this time.

Some marks might help me keep it straight!

So far, so good. 

Whew! Finally got it all glued up the way I wanted it. Now the question to answer is do I screw around with the hand plane or buy a bit and fire up the CNC inside my storage unit like I’m not supposed to do and plane it the quick and awesome way? Hmm, decisions. 😈
