You never want to pass on a good paying job.. and often when I get an email
or a phone about a job everything sounds great until you really look at
it.. okay 16 feet.. So then I took out my tape measure and ran it along my
radial arm saw table, which happens to be 16 feet... OUCH ... longer then
long.. Of course the table could and would be made in pieces. He had
suggested solid wood, boards running the length, well that's not going to
happen in my small one man shop.
It also will have a marquetry panel in the middle 2 ft x 3 ft , that I have
two local folks who are great... That adds another dynamic to the use of
solid. I have been using a lot of veneer these days and when I get back to
this guy I am going to suggest veneer with some good wide solid edges.. Two
8 foot sections installed in the house to look as seamless as possible..
Well we will see about this potential project ??
