Springing Forward

Ahhh….  April!  The days are mild (for Florida standards) and the skies are clear.  Spring is starting out beautifully this year.  While other people are smelling the newly sprung flowers, the shop at KR Woodworking is filled with the smells of freshly cut and finished wood.

The hickory bed was finished in late March.  It ended up being stained to match the color of the vintage headboard for which it was made.  Here’s a picture of the finished project (sans the headboard):


Meanwhile the executive desk is still in process.  Curly maple panels have been added to the cherry frame.


I have also been having some fun with making cutting boards of different shapes from different woods.  The one below is cherry.  I flipped it when I joined it to do what is called running a river.  This picture was taken when it was still in the process of being finished with a beeswax, caranuba and citrus oil.
