    Your work is terrific. Thanks for sharing. My Eve IONA bass, from Scotland, has a Sapele neck. https://www.notreble.com/buzz/2014/1...ces-iona-bass/

    One of these would have been perfect for my new Kindle. I already bought a stand. Nothing as beautiful as this. Purely functional.

    Finally finished the cherry/epoxy table. Im exhausted. The base is made with mahogany, walnut & cherry. I like the base better than the top. LOL

    It's all VERY IMPRESSIVE!! Would love that stuff in my house.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    Found a wood worker guy in the Port area of Tacoma selling some slabs. Great guy! He sold me a slab for $100 that he thought was walnut. Turned out it is Osage. He said, You just paid $100 for a $600 slab. Ha!
    This is gonna be a gorgeous table! Heavy as fuck!

    I am no longer a beginner in working with wood, but I am not a professional yet. This activity is very interesting to me. I already tried to make bookshelves, I polished the wood by hand, and then I bought a sander. I even reviewed it on sanders, but I'm not sure I added examples of the best tools for use at home. I would like to ask for help from people who are more experienced in this matter. Please look at this article https://homemakerguide.com/best-sander/ and tell me if you can remove some models and add others instead?

    I would probably go with a palm sander like the B&D Orbit or Skil random orbit.
    If you need it for just a few things it will do the trick. They are generally available at most hardware or Lowes or Home Depot. Maybe even Target or Walmart.
    An upgrade would be the Dewalt ( same company as B&D ).
    If you feel that later on it is a tool that you would use a lot, then the Makita would be the one.

    Ive been upgrading all my power tools to Dewalt. They just seem to last longer with fewer issues. Also, Id go with a corded sander rather than cordless.

    Thanks for the recommendations. I do not work much with wood yet, but I think that in the future, with the development of a skill, it will be possible to make some products to order. Why not? Furniture is always needed, especially if it is of high quality and at a reasonable price.
