OK, so I joined the local woodworking club recently, & started my first project.
I am working on – what I call a butter box.
150×100x75 Maple box, with splines of ancient manuka (10,000 year old).
The box is now glued up, the top routered for the lid, & the lid fits the box, but still needs a lot of sanding to dome it to my expectations.
I can not wait to see it finished !!!!
Next is to add the splines (three to each corner), before tapering the sides.
Also need to attack the lid & dome it – boy, it is going to be a challenge to get it right.
to top it off, I need to turn / carve a knob for the lid.
Hmmmm… time to trawl my favourite website for ideas….
Lumberjocks is addictive !!!!
