An engineered wood counter top needs three things – thickness, length, sink location, faucet information, knowing which end is exposed, what kind of finish is wanted…  Uh, maybe you noticed that we’re already way over three things.
Steve Miller, owner of Miller Woodworking, has created a method of mitering  edges and folding them down into sinks to create the effect of a thick counter top while at the same time using materials that will be stable and long lasting. My own island counter top, as meticulously as I have taken care of it over the years, has little black lines…  And no, I can’t fix it.
I have had nothing but bad experience with veneer: it is difficult to repair and never looks good after, it is expensive to make anything from, and it does not refinish well. We have a large American Beech peninsula counter with breakfast bar and a kitchen island with Boos Block true end grain butcher block.

This is a birdseye maple and rosewood ring with a heavy constitution and a macasar ebony band in the center as well as prominently on the face of the ring.
This zebrawood ring with a redheart jewel is classical and elegant with a sharp contrast between the woods. Very similar to "honey" this ring utilizes the same exotic woods while toning down the peaked jewel face to a more traditional dimension. Macasar ebony sandwiched between birdseye maple on both sides with a zebrawood jewel setting. Pau Amarello (yellowheart), macasar ebony and redheart veneer make up this dynamic and vibrant ring.

Time for shaping: Thiscan be done either with a simple piece of sandpaper, a dremel tool, a linisher or bench sander with a fine grit.

Six Monogram Options For My Dining ChairsHappy Monday, all! It was a busy weekend, so I didn't really get much of anything done on the house.

Embroidered & Monogrammed Dining ChairsRemember this picture of the dining chairs with the embroidered design on the back that I posted a couple of days ago? Why I Blog (Revisited)Well y'all, I've wanted to write this post for a couple of weeks now, and I just haven't been able to put my thoughts into words until now.
Counter tops can have exposed ends, and you know what that can mean.  Super thick maple butcher block tops eventually delaminate at the ends. While Steve is the mastermind behind this project, the hands-on dude is always a Marine – Cpl. No way could a veneered product stand up to the abuse these counters have been subjected to. The technique involves the use of two plywood cauls and some wooden crossbearers that have a bow shaped profile along one edge.

You'll know that you've applied enough pressure when you can see a bead of glue all the way around the edges. We recognize the hurdles you may face when trying to find quality used office furniture, represented by reputable dealers. You want your flooring or paneling to look real and feel real and maybe you want to use a distressed finish. No, really it is, ask any woodworker.  Take a look at this example of Carbonized Bamboo Line Solid Engineered Wood Hardwood Floor Flooring.
Thin veneer, like what’s on the plywood we buy from the lumber yard, isn’t durable enough for floors, and of course distressing is not an option. Everything else is engineered veneer and miter folded using the most waterproof glue on the market.
Even miter folding into the sink can be successful – with the proper prep, and only the proper prep.
