Unlike most of the blogs I view these days where brightly painted toes are featured, here are mine, tucked snugly in their Keens with a pile of shavings around them from just milling the pod floor. It is April 9th and it is snowing. Still. So exposing toes even without the wood shavings is not an option...
A visit to America's Wood Co in Washington Maine earlier this week provided us with this gorgeous cherry floor. Our intention was red birch going in, however, on the shelves was this stunning cherry, rejected from a high end yacht company, it was perfect for what we needed.
We brought it back to the workshop, and proceeded to mill it.
It will have a slight light brown aniline dye and clear Varathane finish over it.
