Schloss dining room in progress
The dining room is the first room I'll work on, since it has been on my mind the longest and the ideas I had for it where the clearest.
I'm working on 'presentation cardboard' whatever that may be (It was the closest thing to foamcore the local craft store had).
The fireplace will be pitchblack, the overmantle off-white just like the panneling. The yellowish wallpaper will be on there and all the corner and framing wood will also be off-white.
I think the floor will be wallnut, but I'm not sure yet.
This picture was the main inspiration for the dining room. It is the frontroom of 'Hid Hero Hiem' in Bolsward. It used to be an orphanage and now it is a monument. I worked at a school nearby and a colleague was involved in the restoration of the whole building and it's rooms. So we went to visit. Needless to say it was very inspiring!
I've written about my compains to the company, I'll post the outcome.
Last but not least I've been having some problems with my proxxon table saw. Perhaps someone can help me out?
Whenever I put it at an 45degree angle, it starts smoking after a short while of sawing! Attaching the vacuumcleaner or not makes no difference. The smoke is not from the wood that is being cut, but comes from inside. The blade is not touching anything as far as I can see... It doesn't seem to be good or normal for such a saw as this one to be smoking at a certain angle...
Today after this happening again, it also gave me little static shocks! I don't feel save using it anymore now... any advice or experience on this matter?
