« Part 2: Boy, was the dust FLYING, around here ! Part 3 of Tapered Display Tower - beetle-kill pine series Part 4: Take out the BIGGEST guy first. »

a dry fit !

Let’s start with today’s inspiration: a peanut butter cookie, half of which was dipped in chocolate. Uh. Yum !

The “not-so-secret” secret drawer ;-)

It’s got feet !

A shelf….

The top….

Got some band saw work, ahead of me, to cut out the fake tenons and wedges. Soon, though. Very soon.

Thanks for looking :-)

well first things first in my attempt to discuss this piece…i dont know if cookies dipped in chocolate are proper wood workers treats…seems like we should be eating nails or munching on tact’s…but i will let it slide for now…as to the actual piece in question…its looking very right on…i think you did very well in your wood selection for this one…and your 3 degree cuts look right on as well…even though i think i detect a possible 1/2 of degree variance in the very bottom shelf…lol…but i now have chocolate smears on my glasses, so i will give you that one…lol…its looking just wonderful neil …am looking forward to seeing it with the sealer…as i think this wood is really going to sing …grizzman

Looks like the best bench cookie I’ve ever seen, the project looks great too.
Keep cutting

I like cookies. And clamps. You got both, you devil.

I like it. I will be nice to see with the finish.

The dry fit looks good I recommend a cold glass of milk too! Nice progress.

Beetle Kill is really great wood. Full of blues and greens and whites and grays.

Perfectly suited for interesting projects like this!

Wow, Mister Speed. Moving at the speed of a nail gun…..or something like that.

Temp 84 at 1700hrs from the Lanai in Maui. Just rolled in this afternoon and got unpacked. You know I’m an LJ because I already have a small cut on my index finger….........prying open the outside outlet (painted shut). But it will heal quickly, a lot of soaking in salt water ought to take care of it…..........(-:

I have to agree with the rest of the posters, Neil. The display case is coming together well. This looks like you are having a lot of fun with the build.

A cookie in a plastic bag??!!?? Come on Neil, you are missing out on a whole lot of fiber from the sawdust that naturally attaches to these little morsels.

BTW, nice display tower!
