Summer Woodworking Projects II

This is a Shou Sugi Ban charred cedar breakfast table with white pine trim and metal hairpin legs. Shou Sugi Ban is a Japanese style of wood finishing involving charring cedar wood planks in order to protect the wood from insects, weather, and fire and providing a unique dark look to the wood which contrasts nicely with the light pine surround.

Summer Woodworking Projects

Here is a quick update of a few of my recent woodworking projects from this spring and summer. The coffee table, sofa table, jewelry box, and magnetic knife block are made from black walnut wood which my great-grandfather cut and milled decades ago from our family farm in southern Minnesota. The oak desk/breakfast table is made from live edge wood that we milled with a chainsaw from an old dead oak tree on the same farm/woodlands of our family. The interesting character to the wood is from partial rot, weather damage, and insects and makes for a very unique piece.
