I milled some of the smaller sugar maple limbs for live edge slabs. The limbs had a curve to them, so I cut them live edge to get the most I could from the limbs. The limbs were about 9-10 inches wide.
Today I set about to slab the remaining trunk portion of this big ol’ sugar maple tree. This is not the stump. The trunk at the stump is well, still on the stump. It was cut this high off of the ground to safely fell the tree.
We had a little fun this weekend creating new Maritime themed projects.
No big projects on the go these days, but lots going on in the workshop.
The last thing on our to-do list for Kings United Church was to make a new sign for beside the new front doors.
We decided to make another trough(aka trencher bowls). There are so many possible shapes for these troughs, this one turned out very different from the first one we made.
Last we left of with the front steps we finished building the new and scraping paint off the old.
The folks at Kings United Church asked for two new signs for the church. One for beside the front doors (which Jim is working on) and another for the side of the church that faces the road. So we got to work on the largest sign first.
On Saturday morning we built a log planter and it was free!!! That is the best kind of planter. It turned out great, follow along and see how we did it.
Another Atlantic Provinces group of wood maps (3ft x 6ft) completed. This one is going to a construction company in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Lindsay Construction.
