black acacia desk process#2

November 14, 2015 | 0 Comments | the buzz

Another short gallery of process shots in the making of a black acacia desk. This series was taken during the addition of edge bands that were meticulously sanded & cut to 3/32″ thin. One challenge at this phase was to figure out how to resolves the line where the banding met the raw inner bark edge. I found it easier than anticipated & with an orbital sander & skillsaw was able to make a relatively inconspicuous transition.

I can never seem to sand enough, and this sugary brown slab was very pleasing to work with & pull the richness of the grain out.
