Rustic Bench from Old Bed

The back of the bench is an old bed headboard.  The footboard was cut in half, angled, and used as the sides/arms.  An old pine board was used as the seat.

Thanks for replying to my post Dennis. I will give it a try!

Re: How to Cut Decorative Parquetry or Marquetry Using the Window Method

Nice post and nice veneering, thanks. Is there a reason that you don't cut both pieces at the same time as some recommend? Seems like it would save time as well as be even more accurate. Or is this just a "different way"?

Re: Are CNC machines ready for Fine Woodworking?

While I don't have the funds to buy a CNC for my shop, yes, I think fine woodworking is ready for CNC equipment, and I'd buy it if I could. I think it would be great marketing if a company like ShopBot could put together a book(let) outlining CNC basics (CNC 101 if you will) and some examples for the fine woodworker in order to peak our interest. Steve Mosher's photo from this post would make a great cover photo!

Re: How to groove the back of a curved drawer front

A bearing on the slot cutting bit would have eliminated the need for a fence and would have made it easier to do the sides.
