Ha-ha. Cocked a gun while giving instructions this time.

BTW, at the start of this topic, I mentioned about cerusing the ash. But changed my mind as I feel the bare grain
and color contrast of ash and acacia are sufficiently attractive. Traying ceruse on my other projects: kitchen cabinet doors and vanity.

Of course, a porch table should have benches. Been procrastinating about it for a bit because I felt nothing is as boring to build as a farm bench.

But it has to be done.

So I gathered some of the scrap 2"x6"x8' I had set aside when we decided to replace our crumbling trellis with metal.

These ones in the photo are actually the left over bad ones after I milled the rest.

Ripped them into 2"x3"s. Changed the blade into my ripping blade and I am glad I invested the time. These ripping blades just does the job so much easier and quicker.
Image

Then, had to plane all sides to get rid of the old epoxy/urethane coating.
Image

Glue up. Those are actually two benches but clamped them together.
Image

Now, for the legs, I got some Okan with nice grain on it. I would recommend Okan for structural work. It's as heavy as concrete and tough as yakal. Got them from Filtra and Okans are one of their cheapest timber.
Image

To remind you, this is how the porch table legs looked like.

Made a pattern similar to the legs of the porch table, para bagay. then ran them through the bandsaw
Image


BTW, to those who have the same Rikon bandsaw I have and who also bought the orange poly tyres, it's a b*tch to install properly. The tyres are actually a little less than a millimeter oversized. So one has to trim them with a very sharp knife after installation. Had great difficulty as the box cutter I used would get dull quickly as I cut through the tyre and scraped into the rim.

Swerte kasi 2nd hand lumber na so all sides were square.

BTW, my thicknesser is still clicking and halting. Hope I find the time this weekend to open the innards.

Those poly tires are really a pain, installed mine on th 18" Jet also. I boiled it first , and used clamps and a long screwdriver, working under time pressure before it cools down.
Your cutting tools is only as good as your sharpening system.

Wow, thanks, Sonny. Am sure that would be very valuable help. Dyahe naman ako gawin kang repair shop. Tiyagaan ko muna this weekend buksan. Pag hindi talaga kaya ng powers ko, will come over.
