My 3-Wood Performer
« on: June 03, 2016, 11:21:10 AM »
A variety of three woods .


Sugar maple for the lid bale rollers.




Mahogany for the lid vent and handle.






And, black walnut for the table.









The lid bale rollers were made by a local wood-turner.
I have had them on for close to a year, and showing no signs of wear.


Of course, the vent tab and handle were crafted by WKC's resident handle expert, @zavod44 .  Always outstanding work, Brian!  Thank you.


And, the table Well, I made it (believe it or not).  I got plenty of inspiration from this forum.  In particular, THIS one by @glrasmussen .

The wood was from a tree that my Dad had felled many years ago.  He brought a bunch of the longer pieces to a sawyer to have boards cut.
My Dad no longer does any woodworking, as he will be turning 80 later this year.  I ended up getting a bunch of his tools.  The right tools for the job.  ;)
This project did not cost much, other than buying more glue, and spar urethane to finish.  I don't charge myself labour.

That black walnut table is sweet!

I really need one of those lid vent tabs for my original kettle premium.   Do you remember how much Zavod44 charged for that?

That is one outstanding Performer.  They are all beautiful, especially your own custom made table.  If I had that table, I 'd be afraid to put anything on it.  Matter of fact, if I had that performer- I would just use it as a display.

It's a showpiece.
