@uppercutwood: In about a half hour, I get to hangout with the nicest people in woodworking. We’re going to help eachother improve. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Dyami just shared his frame with us, pretty cool G&G inspired. I want to know what he used for the finish. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @uppercutwood shellac. Lots & lots of shellac. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: Be back in ten. Let’s start talking design. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DyamiPlotke wiped, brushed, sprayed? from a can or mix your own? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @kweinert @WoodwrkersGuide @ragewalks welcome to the fun guys! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ragewalks http://t.co/gxrfSTpX is the link to: #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ragewalks http://t.co/XjehUYxu #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: Question of the day. Drive belt needs replacing on my bandsaw. Should I switch to a link belt style? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @woodshaver101 you should just be able to add the link to the image in a tweet, remember to add: #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Hey everyone, and welcome to those who are here for the first time. Reminder to regular attenders be welcoming and awesome! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ramblinrdesigns I’ve never tried them, but I hear good things! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood aren’t we always [awesome]? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ramblinrdesigns if the cost isn’t too much, I’d do it. But I think it makes more of a difference on contractor table saws #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn The awesomesauce in here is yummy #woodchat

@WoodwrkersGuide: @ramblinrdesigns Good question, I tried the link belt once, didn’t like it so went back… now can’t remember why #woodchat

@uppercutwood: So, woodchat is freeform. Ask questions and seek help. Tonight’s focus is design jam. Post your project pics and get feedback #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: Turned some tops today. Was relaxing. Caught every one too. #woodchat http://t.co/6S830HiW

@DJOfurnituremkr: @woodshaver101 Here is one of your photos: http://t.co/HLPkJpNc #woodchat

@kweinert: Evidently I’m still gathering experience. Once again I turn a recess in the bowl bottom that fits between the chuck jaws I have. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: Sorry I’m late..what’s the topic? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DJOfurnituremkr very nice @woodshaver101 #woodchat

@JimAAshley: Good evening everyone. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson very cool, gifts or are these for sale? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Tumblewood Tonight’s focus is a design jam. post pics and get feedback. Although there’s a question about link belts for bandsaws #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @JimAAshley hey Jim! #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: Broke the bandsaw resawing oak for wainscot. Good thing I was almost done. Using ship laps and round edge “v” grooves. #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: Not a furniture project but a good paying one, butter presses Prototype is in center production @ sides: http://t.co/k0v5HOg6 #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood Toys for the kids. I wanted to try it out since I saw George Vondriska do it on youtube. #woodchat

@JimAAshley: @Tumblewood How goes it Vic? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @DJOfurnituremkr so are these to ‘form’ the butter brick? #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: I need to make 98 more. #woodchat

@JimAAshley: @MansFineFurn Hey Nick… how’s it goin? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: I ran my resaw blade until it was dull. Tried the Resaw King..it’s not sharpened correctly – drifts horribly. 3 new on the way #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @MansFineFurn Yes, they are for 1 pound bricks. #woodchat

@ragewalks: Did someone say something about design? this a leg from my current project. http://t.co/OXOjhLOd #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DJOfurnituremkr That’s a lot of presses!! #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @ramblinrdesigns You know they sell oak Wainscotting? :>) #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: I’m here for #woodchat!

@benjamenjohnson: @ragewalks What’s the leg for? #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @Tumblewood The company wants custom cutting & serving boards as well. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ragewalks very nice. Spokeshaved? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @FlairWoodworks Aboot time! My Canadian friend! Hehe #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ragewalks looks cool! what is it for? sketches? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ragewalks Interior panel construction? #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: Hello #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @FlairWoodworks there’s THAT guy! 🙂 #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: Decided to make my own. http://t.co/B74npvG4 #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DJOfurnituremkr cool! Good mark up? I hope #woodchat

@ragewalks: End table legs. http://t.co/DxzDd96e #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DyamiPlotke Hey Hey Dyami! #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: I like #3 best. RT @benjamenjohnson: Turned some tops today. Was relaxing. Caught every one too. #woodchat http://t.co/PUHwfkSf

@ragewalks: End table legs. http://t.co/DxzDd96e #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DyamiPlotke Hey Hey Dyami! #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: I like #3 best. RT @benjamenjohnson: Turned some tops today. Was relaxing. Caught every one too. #woodchat http://t.co/PUHwfkSf

@uppercutwood: @DyamiPlotke there’s THAT other guy #woodchat

@JimAAshley: @DyamiPlotke Hey Dyami, how goes it? #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @Tumblewood Yes, it’s a good job. It will finance new furniture, booth for the Fine Furnishings Show etc. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DyamiPlotke btw, I’m gonna tally everything, but looks like West vs Mid is about equal for cost. I am excited about the WIACA #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @ramblinrdesigns I’ve never seen different width planks like that. Cool. I just bought the 3″ stuff when I put it in my kitchen #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @Tumblewood I have heard one other case of a “defective” blade. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DJOfurnituremkr very nice. are you finding ways to optimize production? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ragewalks cool..looks nice #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: Thanks for the greetings, my friends. Things are well here in the Penultimate Woodshop. How are you? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Tumblewood I am pretty excited to go. My wife and daughter are going. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DJOfurnituremkr awesome..how goes the Japanese connection? #woodchat

@StudioInverness: RT @uppercutwood: @DJOfurnituremkr very nice. are you finding ways to optimize production? #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @ChrisHasFlair #3 also works the best. It was the second one I made. I got too fancy with the middle one I think. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Looks good. RT @ragewalks: Did someone say something about design? this a leg from my current project. http://t.co/OdyVgzp0 #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair The rep was cool..”we’ll ship one right out with a return label” #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @benjamenjohnson The different widths have the same face exposure. They vary to accommodate the joinery. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ragewalks Any pictures of more of the project? #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @uppercutwood You bet. They are going together smooth as butter LOL. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @ChrisHasFlair Nice toy tops Chris. #woodchat


@Tumblewood: @Tumblewood Now I’ll have two Timberwolf 2/3 alternating TPI and the Resaw. I’m good to go!! #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @benjamenjohnson And the 6″ uprights give a frame and panel depth change. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DJOfurnituremkr snare drum!! #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @Tumblewood Good. More work goes there in September. Boxes & jewelry. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DJOfurnituremkr but I still need to know how you use one #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @BillGriggs They’re not mine! #woodchat

@woodshaver101: http://t.co/9uJ9uOUk lets see if this picture comes thru #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DJOfurnituremkr Awesome..you’re building a good base #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: Since we’re chatting desgn, here’s my 2010 Sawdust Chronicals build challenge piece http://t.co/PozmbPb9 #woodchat

@ryanthefloyd: Hey all. This is my first #woodchat. looks like a lot of fun! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: So, does anyone have a design question they’d like input on? Last week we looked at @chrishasflair ‘s new table #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @benaminjohnson They are 1/2″ thick versus 3/8″ for the rest. The horizontal pieces are also 1/2″ thick. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @woodshaver101 it sure did #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: I caught up with #Woodchat!

@benjamenjohnson: @ramblinrdesigns OK, I see it now, the 6″ divide the fields. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DyamiPlotke That piece is when I first knew of you. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ryanthefloyd welcome ryan! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @woodshaver101 yup, looks nice! #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @uppercutwood Here is a video I found: http://t.co/lf2N2xPR #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @uppercutwood the thrill of victory, been trying for awhile #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: What do you guys think of my latest table top I’m working on? http://t.co/LpHIfAEh #Woodchat

@woodshaver101: @MansFineFurn thanks its a slipper chest #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @BillGriggs Hey, I made the tops. Way to give credit to somebody else :P) #woodchat

@ryanthefloyd: @uppercutwood Thanks for being awesomely welcoming! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @woodshaver101 where did you get the reclaimed oak #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @uppercutwood You also looked at my hall table..but, not so much input. further away. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @Tumblewood It was one of the first (& only) completely original pieces to come out of the current shop #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @Tumblewood How’s the design process coming along? Any progress? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Tumblewood let’s get the hall table out here again #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DJOfurnituremkr GOD!! I LOVE real butter. I grew up with cows #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DJOfurnituremkr OK now I get it. it would be cool to have a design pressed into the butter. maybe YOUR logo 🙂 #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @uppercutwood out of a old warhouse.it was 24 inch tall and a football field long,used for a wall bumber #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair I love it. Like I said. I’m planning the same reverse match with my Elm planks #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Void in the middle? RT @Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair I love it. Like I said. I’m planning the same reverse match with my Elm planks #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair You need a tree to grow up through the middle. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @woodshaver101 send the extra my way 🙂 #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Tumblewood oh was this the 69 bookmatch convo? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Think so? It’s a window to the stretcher! RT @ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair You need a tree to grow up through the middle. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair No…painting the master bath #woodchat

@BillGriggs: “@benjamenjohnson DOHHHH #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Ha ha… yeah. RT @uppercutwood: @Tumblewood oh was this the 69 bookmatch convo? #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @uppercutwood The client will offer designs with the custom molds. These molds are for the starter kit. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair is it going to have glass? or something in the middle? #woodchat

@woodshaver101: http://t.co/zdQz0WLq just finished this cabinet this weekend #woodchat

@BillGriggs: “@benjamenjohnson Just trying to inspire others to your level. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @ChrisHasFlair There’s a hole in the middle! #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: I think I’ll rabbet in a custom-cut piece of glass. RT @uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair is it going to have glass? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair I’m planning a gap in the middle and a frame to go away from a live edge. I’ll have to hand draw this. #woodchat

@WoodwrkersGuide: @ChrisHasFlair I like the design, especially the pod shape in the middle #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Say it isn’t so! RT @benjamenjohnson: @ChrisHasFlair There’s a hole in the middle! #woodchat

@woodcanuck: Hey #woodchat talking design tonight?

@ChrisHasFlair: Thanks. RT @WoodwrkersGuide: @ChrisHasFlair I like the design, especially the pod shape in the middle #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @woodcanuck Indeed. Welcom Ian. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: I was going to cut the outside into an eliptical shape. Any thoughts on that? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: The hall table design start for critique #woodchat http://t.co/21s1A9LG

@ChrisHasFlair: Here’s the link again if you missed it for the 69 match. http://t.co/LpHIfAEh #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair yep..I’m gonna copyright that!! #woodchat

@BCcraftmaster: #woodchat hey woodchat sorry I’m late, watching the flyers get beat 9-3. Design huh!

@benjamenjohnson: @BillGriggs Level? I’m just learning to turn, I’m Subterranean, It’s lonely here in the basement. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Are the legs in line with the ends of the table? RT @Tumblewood: The hall table design #woodchat http://t.co/0jD0pznp

@blowery: Hi #woodchat. I spent the night making wooden dogs for the bench. Woo.

@Tumblewood: @woodcanuck IAN!!! How’s the bench coming? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair i’d say leave it natural #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Wheels falling off? RT @BCcraftmaster: #woodchat hey woodchat sorry I’m late, watching the flyers get beat 9-3. Design huh!

@DyamiPlotke: @Tumblewood I like it Vic. How will the legs be attached to the top? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: As in don’t cut the outside at all? That would be one BIG table! RT @uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair i’d say leave it natural #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair Very cool..there was a table shown on twitter today..didn’t send the link home. sorry. but.. bookmatch void #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @Tumblewood something funky about the aspect ratio: Maybe the top needs to be longer (relative to the legs/stance)? #woodchat

@BCcraftmaster: @ChrisHasFlair there’s still 20 min left #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @ChrisHasFlair Seriously, that does look pretty cool Not sure about functional though unless you put some glass or something there #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @Tumblewood If you find the link, I’d like to see it. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair I can see cutting off the branch ends. I’d leave it as rough as possible though. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair This doesn’t have legs..panel..not as wide as the top. #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: What do people use to identify “found” wood? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @tumblewood I’d have the legs be thicker at the top (easier to join to the top) and get thinner on the way down (like animal legs) #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @benjamenjohnson I think we should learn to accept praise and to give it when needed. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @benjamenjohnson There will be glass in the middle. I think I’ll cut the outside to a more regular shape. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @MansFineFurn I still have the center to draw in on Sketch Up. That will change the balance. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair And that’s only to make it easier to sit around. Although I like its current shape too. Hard to tell how big it is. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Yes. RT @ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair I can see cutting off the branch ends. I’d leave it as rough as possible though. #woodchat

@WoodwrkersGuide: @DavidJUlschmid Urban Pau lei #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair I’ll try after woodchat to go back and find it #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns But when I cut off the branch ends, I’d have square edges and live edges. I don’t like the mix, in this case… #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns …so I’d probably cut the entire outside edges and leave the inside edges live. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @uppercutwood I like the idea of encapsulating the raw essence inside of a more refined space #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @BillGriggs Praise…I can give it but I have a hard time taking it…kinda like criticism #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair you mean a custom piece of glass just in the middle “hole” right? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns The slabs are 8-feet long. #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @DavidJUlschmid I’ve gone to the dnr,to get a list of local tree species and start from there #woodchat

@kweinert: @DavidJUlschmid This site has a lot of pictures and descriptions: http://t.co/XOIdqqdG #woodchat

@blowery: @DavidJUlschmid understanding wood by hoadley has a pretty good walk through. Usually color, pore structure, grain, and context. #woodchat

@JimAAshley: I’ll throw this one out… thinking of trying wedged mortise/tenon. Are there any species that you need to watch for splitting? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair i think cut off branches could look cool if polished up nice #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair That’s what is driving the design I’m developing for my Elm slabs #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @MansFineFurn Yeah, I don’t think i want any funny green stuff coming through the middle. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Yes. RT @uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair you mean a custom piece of glass just in the middle “hole” right? #woodchat

@BCcraftmaster: #woodchat I got the butcher block top joined to the base yesterday. Just need to draw bore the mortise and tennons http://t.co/f8s0irVM

@DavidJUlschmid: @uppercutwood I often find good short log segments and resaw them. But when people ask what kinda wood it is, I can’t tell them #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair What about adding a darker contrasting wood as a thin border around the newly cut exterior? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Do you mean cut off so they are “flush”, then polished? RT @uppercutwood: cut off branches could look cool if polished up nice #woodchat

@woodshaver101: “@ChrisHasFlair i would remove the bark then carve some details like scaling on the edge #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: @uppercutwood If you just have a short piece of log. No leaves, just bark, how do u ID the species? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Hmm. I dunno. Not a trim fan. RT @ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair What about adding a darker contrasting wood as a thin border #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns To me, trim is what you add to plywood and veneered goods. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @blowery I’ll have to check that book out. I mistook select pine for oak once. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair yes. shows more of the natural side of the wood. bark and rings on edge, grain on top. hot #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: “Not a bad idea! RT @woodshaver101: @ChrisHasFlair i would remove the bark then carve some details like scaling on the edge #woodchat”

@DavidJUlschmid: @blowery Thanks, Ben. I’ll look it up. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @blowery Hello, Ben. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @woodshaver101 @ChrisHasFlair I like that idea. Just something to replace the lost bark so it is not smooth. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DavidJUlschmid your hardwood supplier might help you identify stuff, or we can help too with good pics. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: How would you guys join the two together? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: I have 2 of the middle slabs. Not full live edge #woodchat http://t.co/mqGesztN

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns @woodshaver101 I could also glue on some bark from elsewhere. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Tumblewood those are very nice #woodchat


@woodshaver101: @ChrisHasFlair a flouting tennon would work well #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: @woodshaver101 Great idea! Find those with the knowledge and they are usually happy to share. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @BCcraftmaster The bench looks good! Any concerns about the top breaking if you pound on it? #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair That’s an interesting idea. If you can keep it stable enough. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DyamiPlotke The inner cabinet will hang from the top and intersect the panels. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: RT @ChrisHasFlair: I could also glue on some bark from elsewhere. That just sounds wrong. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: That was my first idea. RT @woodshaver101: @ChrisHasFlair a flouting tennon would work well #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair I almost like the idea of rusted iron joining the slabs. It’s ‘natural’ too – organic at least. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Why? RT @benjamenjohnson: RT @ChrisHasFlair: I could also glue on some bark from elsewhere. That just sounds wrong. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Hmm. RT @uppercutwood: I almost like the idea of rusted iron joining the slabs. It’s ‘natural’ too – organic at least. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: That’s #woodchat! RT @DavidJUlschmid: @woodshaver101 Great idea! Find those with the knowledge and they are usually happy to share.

@benjamenjohnson: @BCcraftmaster That top looks good. Was it harder to flatten with the endgrain? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: What is the blue tape for? RT @Tumblewood: I have 2 of the middle slabs. Not full live edge #woodchat http://t.co/XPeiJ8lR

@BCcraftmaster: @ChrisHasFlair #woodchat I was thinking I would add upper stretchers, but if it’s gonna break, its gonna break. I spend a lil cash/redo top

@woodshaver101: @DavidJUlschmid i have a friend with 40 acres of woods and the dnr help id some woods,we found some cool wood. #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: @MansFineFurn I don’t have any pics. Maybe Ill have done for the next #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair I need to know the design direction. refined and polished modern slab, or more natural (but not rustic) #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @uppercutwood I think it’ll be more refined. Refined but rustic 🙂 #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: off topic: Inerested in the neurobiology and sociology of creativity, read Jonah Lehrer’s “Imagine: how creativity works” #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @uppercutwood Did you see the stretcher? #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @ChrisHasFlair I don’t know. when I see bark on a piece I just assumed it grew there, now you’ve got me second guessing that. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair just playing with size #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: off topic: Inerested in the neurobiology and sociology of creativity, read Jonah Lehrer’s “Imagine: how creativity works” #woodchat

@BCcraftmaster: @benjamenjohnson #woodchat high Angeles (55degrees) on my plane blades and a little sweat

@MansFineFurn: @DavidJUlschmid @uppercutwood sometimes smell, sometimes grain type, appearance color, etc. got pics? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @benjamenjohnson Nothing is as it appears 😉 #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: RT @MansFineFurn: @ChrisHasFlair what, you didn’t like the three options I gave you ?!? 😉 #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair i don’t think I did #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair I like a combination of rustic and refined. contemporary. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair Good read. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Here’s the stretcher for those who haven’t been following along #flairww #woodchat http://t.co/DxN8D0ap

@ChrisHasFlair: Me too. It’s fun to build too. RT @Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair I like a combination of rustic and refined. contemporary. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair like a refinished old door on a nice house? but not cowboy right? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ChrisHasFlair dovetailed spline in contrasting wood, Domino (XXXXXL) or …now I’ve forgotten the last one… #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: RT @ChrisHasFlair: Here’s the stretcher for those who haven’t been following along #flairww #woodchat http://t.co/DxN8D0ap @uppercutwood

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair link no work #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @MansFineFurn Well, the XXXXXL is suitable for the 69 match, but not available for another century. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @ChrisHasFlair Access denied for me on the link #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair Uh oh. Access denied to the link. Did I say something wrong? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ChrisHasFlair yeah, and it’ll cost ya #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @MansFineFurn I’m wondering if a dovetailed spline would be too much of a distraction. #woodchat

@JimAAshley: be back in a few min folks #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: Had to step out. A friend posted a photo of my first car and I got excited, memories: http://t.co/xfmKCAuZ #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @benjamenjohnson Chris!! Get your shit together dude!! #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns Let me try another link… #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair I’m kinda thinking like “we got this old door off a church in italy, cleaned it up and here’s our table” #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ChrisHasFlair what about floating it on dovetailed ways, pegged from below to prevent sliding off #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DJOfurnituremkr That’s not a GTO is it? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DJOfurnituremkr that old detroit monster moved I bet! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: 15 minutes to go in woodchat. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @MansFineFurn The design I’m working on is a conversion dining/coffee table #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ChrisHasFlair doubt it, you’d only see it from the end (I’m not talking about a butterfly on the surface) #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @DJOfurnituremkr I bet you wish u still had it #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: El stretcher, working! @benjamenjohnson @uppercutwood @ramblinrdesigns #woodchat http://t.co/ypS914hD

@Tumblewood: @Tumblewood I should say for the Elm slabs #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair that’s hot, leave the voids or fill them? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Oh! That changes everything! RT @MansFineFurn: you’d only see it from the end (I’m not talking about a butterfly on the surface) #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @Tumblewood 1970 Dodge Charger 🙂 #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair see..I picture a contrasting wood on the edges of that stretcher..don’t know why..just do #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: They’re huge. They’ll be unfilled. RT @uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair that’s hot, leave the voids or fill them? #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @woodshaver101 Sure do, that thing was a neck snapper. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair This is going to be one massively heavy table. Hope you have help moving it. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @ChrisHasFlair Where do you find these pieces? OK better question where do you find them for a reasonable price? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Bottom edge is live. RT @Tumblewood: see..I picture a contrasting wood on the edges of that stretcher..don’t know why..just do #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @benjamenjohnson Go find a local sawyer and make friends with ’em! #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DJOfurnituremkr oh..see, I’ve never been good with cars..I like to drive, but prefer comfort in the US, since no Autobahn #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Yeah… so true. RT @ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair This is going to be one massively heavy table. Hope you have help moving it. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns I can barely move one slab!!! #woodchat

@BillGriggs: I designed a prop for a play. Street lamps for Oliver Twist. I built it today. http://t.co/WFCaPjM2 #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @DJOfurnituremkr I had a 1967 dodge charger,sure wish I could of kept it #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair With that great stretcher underneath I’m all for glass in the center so you can see the stretcher from above. Nice. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair OK..contrast wood on the top of stretcher..tie in with the top. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: RT @ramblinrdesigns: With that great stretcher underneath I’m all for glass in the center so you can see the stretcher from above. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Cool idea. Tie it in with what? RT @Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair OK..contrast wood on the top of stretcher..tie in with the top. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ramblinrdesigns i agree. show that off. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @Tumblewood I could use the same wood on top of the stretcher and for the butterflies that join the top… #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair make that stretcher low so it isn’t in the shadows #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair a finished edge treatment on the top #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Hmmm. RT @Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair a finished edge treatment on the top #woodchat

@kelvinringold: RT @BillGriggs: I designed a prop for a play. Street lamps for Oliver Twist. I built it today. http://t.co/WFCaPjM2 #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair That would help tie it in. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Good point. I still need some suitable legs. RT @uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair make that stretcher low so it isn’t in the shadows #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair Could the stretcher be cut to reach up into the center of the table and still support the rest? #woodchat

@woodshaver101: pizza is done goodnight all #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @BillGriggs Very cool, Bill. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair I really like mixing rustic and contemporary. Not a fan of full on live edge, but like to incorporate it #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: As in thru? RT @ramblinrdesigns: Could the stretcher be cut to reach up into the center of the table and still support the rest? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @woodshaver101 night! thanks for coming by #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Keep it subtle? A detail to discover? RT @Tumblewood: Not a fan of full on live edge, but like to incorporate it #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Tumblewood i agree. now cowboy rustic, more like a refined restored antique church door #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair I think that would be too busy #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns I don’t think I can get the stretcher to poke through, but it can peak above the bottom of the top. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @BillGriggs Going to cut it on one of your CNC machines? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @uppercutwood sort of, yes #woodchat

@uppercutwood: RT @uppercutwood: @Tumblewood i agree. NOT cowboy rustic, more like a refined restored antique church door #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Back to the table top… would you leave the ends straight, or round them? #woodchat #flairww

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair Yeah, just a thought. Could help fill the gap and tie the three pieces together visually and structurally. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair for that configuration..rounded #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair That could be interesting. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair follow the grain #woodchat

@kring_l: Sorry I missed #woodchat had dance lessons for my impending doo I mean wedding

@ChrisHasFlair: This table has a visually dominant top, a visually strong stretcher… what do I do for legs? Simple & clean? Live edge? Crotch? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @ChrisHasFlair simple clean for sure. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @kring_l hehe #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @benjamenjohnson Yes I cut it with my CNC outer last night and delivered it today. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns However, the feature of the stretcher is the sides, not the top. So it should be low as @uppercutwood said. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: That’s my inclination too. RT @MansFineFurn: @ChrisHasFlair simple clean for sure. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair Maybe something out of metal so it doesn’t compete with the wood. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Now you’re talking! RT @ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair Maybe something out of metal so it doesn’t compete with the wood. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair I’d go for two species. one the top and stretcher,…one the legs, incorporate into the top and stretchers #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair If the stretcher is low, I see legs that match the stretch, coming out at very low angles. like trestle. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns Or maybe black paint? 😉 #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: RT @ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair Maybe something out of metal so it doesn’t compete with the wood. #woodchat <- Not a bad idea!

@ChrisHasFlair: RT @Tumblewood: I’d go for two species. one the top and stretcher,…one the legs, incorporate into the top and stretchers #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @Tumblewood Good idea. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair stretcher connected to top with simple and clean subdued non visually dominating #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: I don’t follow. RT @uppercutwood: If the stretcher is low, I see legs that match, coming out at very low angles. like trestle. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair i should sketch something #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: @ChrisHasFlair That would be easier to work with and probably achieve the same look. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: “@benjamenjohnson I make lots of Stage props with CNC. I have the local schools spoiled. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Please and thank you! RT @uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair i should sketch something #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair That gives you three elements..more that that gets too busy #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Exactly! Rule of 3! RT @Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair That gives you three elements..more that that gets too busy #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair This should be a dining table..or like I’m doing a conversion table. #woodchat

@JimAAshley: Gotta run folks, everyone have a great night! #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @BillGriggs That’s cool. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @BillGriggs That’s cool. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: I have a wicked lazy-S shaped slab! RT @Tumblewood: This should be a dining table..or like I’m doing a conversion table. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: “Me too..running off to hang with my bud. Good discussion again!

@’ #woodchat”

@benjamenjohnson: Hmmm…. tweetchat is giving me trouble. Oh, well time to catch my son and put him to bed. Great chatting. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @ramblinrdesigns I’ll be tweeting my progress with #flairww and updating my blog. http://t.co/p9PSrtiO #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair i just tweeted you my crappy quick sketch #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: goodnight, my friends. #woodchat

@JimAAshley: @Tumblewood have a good one Vic! #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair Also, Chris..let’s talk about WIA West. I need to make flight plans. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @chrishasflair http://t.co/gFh40pnS #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @JimAAshley Thanks Jim..you too! #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @uppercutwood Hmm. I think the uprights need to be wider… more substantial. #woodchat

@ramblinrdesigns: Lively as ever. Thanks all. See you next week. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Tumblewood @chrishasflair I’ll buy buckets of beer again #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Bye to all the #woodchat crew who’s leaving.

@ramblinrdesigns: “@ChrisHasFlair Thanks. I’ll try to follow along. Sounds challenging. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair yeah, that’s a quick crappy sketch. illustrating my overall idea. low stretcher, trestle legs, subdued uprights. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @uppercutwood I’ll pass..they were Buds!! I think..I’m a beer snob #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @uppercutwood You gave me a great idea. I’ll carve the legs into trianglular pieces morphing into the stretcher. Think Maloof. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: Good night #Woodchat. Gotta get a good nights sleep before #140cuse. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Tumblewood I’ll buy you good ones pickyVic! #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @uppercutwood I’m envisioning more pronounced uprights, but not visually competitive. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Wahoo! RT @uppercutwood: @Tumblewood @chrishasflair I’ll buy buckets of beer again #woodchat

@Tumblewood: Chris..we should talk about your design, too. I think you have a great start. As always. Love that you improvise. I can’t yet. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair sounds good to me. #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @Tumblewood Sure, Vic. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @uppercutwood Then I’m in #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ChrisHasFlair I may holler at you after Sylvia crashes. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: the chat is officially over, but keep going anytime 24/7 if you want #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: @MansFineFurn Think I can gradually fade from ebonized to un-coloured maple? I want to try! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair perhaps with dye shading? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Perhaps… RT @uppercutwood: @ChrisHasFlair perhaps with dye shading? #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: You guys are getting me excited! #woodchat

@ChrisHasFlair: Great #woodchat, guys. I’m off to watch the #Canucks game now…

@BobbyHagstrom: @ChrisHasFlair What the puck is a canuck? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Adios everyone – see you next week. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: You’re not cheering for the opposition, are you? RT @BobbyHagstrom: @ChrisHasFlair What the puck is a canuck? #woodchat
