Default Garret, some cherry wood

Now Butch, if you're going to be a wood working guy you'd better get the lingo right. Ripping is cutting naturally grown wood along it's grain. Crosscutting naturally grown wood is across it's grain. One can not per say rip or crosscut plywood or sheet goods, plywoods and other sheet goods are just cut. ......carry on; if you need me I'll be in the corner picking my nose. ....but NOT eating it!

That I cut, ripped, beat, banged, drilled, sanded, clearcoated, and also cussed it a little







that is a cherry table I built, below aresome cabinets I finished the boxes were in and the cabinet guy took the $$ and ran. I came in and finished up behind them.








I got to use that router table making all of those doors, I don't any pictures after everything was complete. The job came out good but it was a real mess when I first walked into it.

Yea I bet it would cost something to ship it to Scotland.

I had 2 buts milled way back. I can go measure it up. It definatly needs to be cut and glued and plained. But if my memeory serves me correctly...thats typical for cherry.

Well now I know what my gallye kitchen is going to look like after I change it over from oak to cherry.
Are those cherry floors as well Butch?
So are the cabinet boxes laminate or solid wood?
What type of finish is on the floors, cabinet and table?
So was there budget restraints, hence the white chairs.
The table, the top, are those just sides or do you have a full panel on the underside? Are the legs solid? Nice

Garett,
The boxes were plywood but over 1/2 were not even drilled for pins and there was a budget to deal with, this other guy took the $$ and ran, gives all of us a bad name.
I'm a Cabot's guy on a lot of wood, the cabinet door's and shelves have two coats sanding seal and the table has four coats of semi-gloss poly with everything sanded in between coats.

The top is solid and the mid-beam is solid. I glued and screwed 3/4 AA Birch together and then after I biscuted the 3/4 cherry panels they glued to the birch core. I built everything in panels so I could hide all the fasteners and yes the underside of the table is 3/4 cherry also.

The table is bolted together with 5/8" allthread which is hidden inside of the legs with some 1/4" steel plates I welded 5/8" nuts too so I could have a compression fit to pull everything together. I have more detailed pic's of that.
Took eight sheets of birch to make the core and almost four gallons of titebond II for the glue.
I had to get four people to help me put it together
Sometimes I get carried away....

That stuff is hard to work with, that was probably part of the cussing part

I have 20 boards , all 8'. the narrowest is 1x5 and the widest seams like there might be 3 at 15" it appears some, 3 or 4 boards might be concidered 5/4... I have no idea what they are worth. I was told by a millman 15 years ago I wanted this stuff though.... whatever that might mean??????

Wow, that's quite a table then!!! Question, are the floor tiles 12"x12"? The reason why I ask is because if they are then it allows me to better understand the size scale of the table.....again NICE table! I love the character in the wood on the legs.

Have you gotten into using scrappers as an alternative to sandpaper? They do one hell of a nice job in flattening out a surface and finish.

Garett,
Yes the tiles are 12x12, the table is just under eleven feet and each section is 22" wide. Had a very hard time finding cherry boards eleven' + but I did not want any head joints in top of the table.

The drawer slides that I like are the BLUM full extenison soft close.
No I have not used those scrapers, I know that Veritas Makes nice tools though,
hard to get good tools any more. I think all of home depot/lowes stuff has brought the quality level down.

Beautiful kitchen. Had our cherry cabinets made 10 years ago when we built the house. Nice to see you left some cambium on. My cabinet maker refused to leave it on saying we wouldn't like it when the color deepens. We also did our entryway and dining room floors, and family room ceiling in cherry. Managed to leave the cambium on there though and its turned out beautiful. If you need some cherry, I'm in western Pa., and there's an amish saw mill not too far away that custom cuts. I can get you a contact number...

Again very beautiful cabinets and floors. A stupid question - Are the floors and cabinets local, U.S. or Brazillian Cherry? Is anyhting stained or pre finished? I am considering prefinished cherry for my remodeled family room once my knee heals.....Does/did the color change much with time? Around here they call lots of cherry colored things cherry.
