Bubinga Knife Display Tables – Update

By Jim

Just finished ripping the 8/4 bubinga stock for the legs. Fhew! It’s so hard and dense, the saw blew the breaker 4 times. There’s a bit of burning (as I expected), but i ripped them slightly wide to allow for a quick pass through the jointer or a couple of passes with a hand plane to clean them up. Based on tonight’s experience, I’m guessing I’ll have to sharpen my chisels a few times while squaring up the mortises.
