So just I wish beautiful day for all.

From its placing on the market, I kept Conturo nicely at the back of my wish list. I always defeat my desire with balance sheet and therefore my wallet stayed safe. Melanin itself also took a place in making a decision. I'm not gonna lie, I don't like this material but it is a standard in Europe so one can't avoid it.
This summer my work mounded to an amount that a professional workroom would give respect for. So the time has come. Welcome to my new toy. The beginnings were a bit shaky but every new piece made me happier. So I can introduce to you first wardrobe made of tandem FORMAT & CONTURO. It's a successful combination.
The library is 1mm oak veneer and 5mm on the edge. Dry montage is  following with pickling and four coats of italien finish Milesi.
In the rest of the pictures I tried to highlight how is it here bursting at the seams. The idea of big workroom is gone.

Have a nice day all of you guys

@alkaline , I just read all the new "member projects" updates.
We are in need of an update in this thread  [big grin]


Hello, my name is little lego man. I like to walk around in this little landscape and carry this sign.

Looking at your most recent photographs I see that your 'newish' workshop is now fully functional and with quality customer projects at hand.

Best wishes for your continued success.

May I be a gargoyle in your shop? Something about
those pictures of your shop just gives me goosies.
So much enthusiasm put into your story. I'm sure
as well as others we all look forward to more of your
adventures in 2017.

Have a Safe & happy New Years!

Hello Ricky L,
I didn't use any inner reinforcement. Handle/ vertical part is bonded by two pieces of nut-wood. I arranged them after sawing up in a way to make them pull against each other. Since  I was working for myself this risk is acceptable and in the same time a source for next examination of shape of constancy of this solution. From a distance of three quarters of the year the gap between the doors is still 4 mm as in the beginning. I'm satisfied.

Many thanks Tim,
I apologise for being late with my response, the time flies unbelievably. I wish you and also to your close people a successful and happy new year.

The end of last year gave me a really hard time. In the beginning of this one the heating in my workshop decided to stop working hence coming back to my playground was a bit slower. I made this sliding door last week and currently I'm working on other door with hidden hinges. It's a new game for me so I'm moving forward carefully. I made myself preparations for milling the hinges and individual parts will soon end up in skilled hands of techno-viking. He will take care of brilliant white surface.
And I will acquaint you with the result soon. Have a nice day all of you.   [wink]

I just ran through the preparation of these tables. Epic fight. Something I also caught on camera.

Hi everybody.
The first of May is a holiday in our country. So I can share some pictures.
Tables (12 pieces) were completed and found their place. Even the wenge office is finished. The outdoor kitchen will be completed soon.

Nice day for all FOG members.

Thanks for the post Alkaline - love it (as always!).

Can I ask a question about those tables and your choice of construction technique? I ask because I made a table that also had radiating mitres (but as it was an outdoors table I had gaps between each "ring").

I noticed you cut 16 mitres per table top, and seemed to build it from the centre out. Would it have been easier to make some wide boards first, then cut 4 mitres per table top? Would this have had other problems instead? I am not even close to your level of experience and skill, so would love to learn more about your decisions if you're willing to share.  [smile]
