  • Wrap around!

    Even with about 18 inches of snowfall (and over four feet of drifting!) the workshop was humming. I’ve got all of the box parts cut and prepped for assembly of 34 boxes (35 if you count the tester box.)
    Here are a couple of the dry fittings…some Birdseye Maple and Padauk.
    More pics and a hint of my illusions of NHL glory can be found on the blog.

        BHD, I ended up setting those small Marblewood and Bubinga pieces aside for another time. I think I'll build a sled though and use some double sided tape to hold them secure. They do have one flat, jointed face, so I counld also use them in a way that allows the other surface to remain rough, maybe with some creative carving/shaping?

        Cactus, Funny thing is, I moved from New Mexico a little over a year ago! What was I thinking?!

        The inside dimensions vary a little...anywhere from about 2 1/2 inches to just under four inches. Mostly decorative, to store small items or to place other gifts in. I'll be sending about 8 to 10 of them out to my cousin in Maryland for a silent auction/fund raiser for her daughter's school.

        These are great cold weather projects since they don't require as much space as full sized furniture pieces. I've got a display table that's almost complete...just waiting on Spring!
