KEA attempted builds, 2019

Recommended Posts

Building one day a week is a challenge. Im finding ways to make it happen though!
Here are some projects currently in the works.

Beautiful work! Is that zircote in the last photo? Also what's the quilted wood?

Thanks!
Yes, it is ziricote.

It is quilted maple.

😀 I thought it might be, but wasn’t sure on account of the stain.

There actually isnt any stain on it at all right now.

And how much does it weigh?:blink:

 

Dang Luis, you've got bodies stacked up like cordwood. You're a regular one day a week factory. And it's all gorgeous as always.

How thick is that ziricote? 😮 must have cost a fortune!

The ziricote was originally 1 5/8" thick. I had to take it down to about 1 1/8" thick.

It weighs a ton Scott, but i havent officially weighed it yet.

Thanks everybody! Since i have to build less, i tried focusing on making the builds i do have time for the best i can.

Some of those bodies ive had for like a year that i never got around to.  I also still have enough wood to make that many more, if i ever got around to it.

Just thought i would check in.

LIfe has been super busy still. I have experienced a lot of emotionally taxing things the past 6 months.

I really havent felt like building. All of these projects are still sitting in my garage.

Hope you are all doing well!

Life always has it's way of preventing fun from time to time, your builds are looking stunning though. Looking forward to seeing how they turn out.

No idea what u r going thru... but i feel like "I know the feeling".  Building for me has become how I forget about all the 5 o'clock traffic in my mind... until I run up against some trouble... then it becomes more 5 o'clock traffic! 

Here's to some open lanes for both of us.

Cheers Luis!

I'm sure those projects will start talking to you before too long. In the meantime go fishing! That always knocks all the other crap out of my mind....at least for a while.
