House progress

2008-09-22 16:28:51.794104+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

Milled a new threshold out of Ipe and put in the first cabinet for the kitchen this weekend. No pictures yet of the cabinet 'cause it doesn't have the drawers in and is stuffed in a corner, but trust me, it looks good for what it is. Also ran edging on a bunch of ply that'll become our pantry shelves, hopefully this evening I'll get time to do two rips to get the edging to the right width (easier to do when it's glued to the plywood) and cut the horizontals. Aaaand, reviews of drawer slides coming soon.

How do you like working with ipe?

Milling it is a lot easier than I expected, given that it's so dense and hard. However, it generates a really fine green horrible smelling sawdust, so when I used the router I wore the tightest goggles I could find and a respirator, and still would like to do that outside as well.
