CNNP Sheoak Coasters #4: my attempt to be a "shipwright"

This is part 4 in a 5 part series: CNNP Sheoak Coasters

Then look I had disillusionary thoughts after seeing some of shipwrights work  I could replicate a table.
Its the same table I attempted to "copy" from some flooring inlay work posted by SRAS in Nov 2019


I made the mistake of working with Pine in an outdoor environment and sure enough mother nature manage to educate me .

so in Aug 2023 some four years later this is what it looked like

Mind you the inlay work did survive better than the table top

Pretty sad to say the least, so being just a little bit smarter rebuild it in a more environmentally suitable material.


Albeit a little bland from the original work I did.



hence along comes my next crack pot Idea!

I thought the She-Oak pieces would look really neat in a table top!

SoIi amused myself trying to work out "how to do it"  (much the same as Aniela McGuinness) (and well worth a watch!)

1. I traced the outline of a piece of She-Oak. (its She-Oak because I haven't been told otherwise, (hint hint  Denco's)

drilled our the waste and jig sawed the rough profile following (inside the lines!)


And then took to it with my Osc sander and Die grinder to get the minor detail correct.


the initial template material is some LBD MDF if you follow him you will know what I mean.
Next came a substantial  piece of ply wood for a template.
with a little tweaking with the Die grinder it all appeared to work really well.

The real Mc Coy... above


I manage to obtain a "good" result, but being I didn't really know what I was doing it made me reluctant to destroy my "new" table top.
So I made a sacrificial piece  again in plywood scraps to test the results out.

It was enough for me to strap on the chute and jump.


I wonder will it open automatically for me?


Regards Rob

It looks like you have that worked out quite well. I think the chute's gonna open just fine 😀
Hell RC, that's a mean effort with an OscanDie

 That looks like a "He Oak" with testicular issues.

Let's hope it opens,

If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD
