A few sofa tables I finished. One is a mesquite slab an aggie provided. I just did the base and finished up the top with some mild turquoise inlay:



Another is a walnut hall/sofa table, but I did a tree trunk style base.




Another project I am working on to consume some on hand inventory is a cherry desk. The top is a curved joint between two curved boards. I decided I wanted the skirt on the desk to mirror the curve of the top, so I did some bent lamination glue ups from natural edge cuts of some slabs from the same tree as the top:
The tops:

This is how the curved front would look with a straight skirt.. and I don't like it on the desk with the heavier curve:

ripping the stock for the glue up:

the skirt with a curve to match the edge of the top:


This is the plan, a lighter writing desk with curved drawer fronts:


The other desk top in the picture is going to be another cherry desk, but with raised panels and a block ATM carved panel in the front center (no bevel!)


I also got some slabs delivered from a vacation I took with the family a month ago to hawaii. These will both turn in to desks.

Monkeypod:


I dont show it in the pic, but I have a 30" section of the slab cut off and I am going to do a waterfall desk with some cabinets from that slab, similar to this on the joint/end:


Mango:


I also ordered some koa slabs for a desk I am making. It will be koa veneer panels, koa framing, koa bookmatch top.

The koa slabs:

They will have some insane figure:


This is the model for the desk:


Also, a dresser in progress that I just got all the dovetails cut for the drawers....


Hmm... I think I may be biting off more than I can chew.. but I am getting there. I also have a mesquite humidor for boogs hidden in there that he has been insanely patient with me on.

edit to add, also doing a small mesquite burl cigar tray which should be really cool. I found a piece of mesquite with some crazy cool grain:

Beautiful. Going to need to talk to you about a desk and possibly a coffee table when our house is done next year.

amazing and inspirational as always. Monkeypod is an awesome wood. I made a cutting board with monkeypod and maple and I can't get over how the grain of the monkeypod looks.

I am fully convinced agrams does not sleep. That's the only way he has enough time to produce the output that he does.

Well done as always man.

finishing up a curly maple humidor I donated for the gofundme for Cory Toombs cancer treatment that got spun up on the football board. It was mainly finished already, but I added a tray in it per the donor's request.
