This week I completed my final projects. A router table and an improved Delta
I use Australian's Jarrah lumber that I bought when my wife moved to the Bay
area exactly three years ago. I particularly like the Jarrah, look like Purple
Heart, but more brownish and turn deep brownish after polyurethane finished. It
is heavy (dense) and stables even if kept for years after planing. Oak and Maple
will bend or twist over time. Unlike most lumber it produces saw dust, instead
of curly chips.
In a few months (wife has cancer), we must move out and someone had offer to buy
"lock stock and barrel" all woodworking tingy. Have not been paid and I may have
to enact plan "B" (craigslist). If you are in the SF Bay areas, you might like
to see my Jarrah's router table/Delta bandsaw fences and the precious vintage
Atlas DP "Savage" variable speed control before we part company forever.
You can see all these in abpw. "Jarrah Fences - Router Table Delta Bandsaw
Projects." Email me if you are interested email@example.com
