Chuck never happened, as i had two or three multijaw lathe chucks.

So a bit of ingenuity and re tapping chuck mounting back plates,
and job done.

Yeah , they are not bad at all, but yew is hard to beat really, its a
class timber.

Finished this little table today, really happy with it! Was just doing it for the laugh, but it's actually the perfect size for next to my bed, I have somewhere to leave my phone and laptop now instead of the floor





I was originally intending on doing a fancy nest of tables, but I needed more wood than I had thought, so said I'll just do the one instead and a simpler design.

I had also attempted a box joint with the legs flush to the sides, but made a hames of it so it's just screwed. Next project I have to use some joinery!

Finished the first white coat and the two fiddly-bits willow-colour coat on the shed:



And got the last of the slats for the current project roughed out:



This week will see a lot of planing to thickness in a thicknessing jig...

Nice jig, how wide is the track on it? Will the place ride the rails parallel or will you have to skew it across the rails.

I made a smaller one for my no5 a while back, worked a treat. Much smaller pieces than you're dealing with though!!

Ah, it's larger in the photo than real life
It's just wide enough for my #5½ plane + ¼" so it'll ride parallel readily enough. The slats are mostly around 11-12mm thick and they're being planed down to ⅜" (so about 9.5mm) thick each, and they're only around 1¾" wide. The real pain was the rough-cutting because resawing 8x1 ash boards by hand is not as much fun as it sounds.

Finished my "rustic" cheese press.

It's not exactly fine furniture, but to be fair, it was a pair of 2x4 offcuts and a length of threaded rod last Thursday, so I think it's okay for a cack-handed amateur.
