I’m SO new to woodworking that nearly EVERY project has me back at the bottom of some learning curve or another.
I rarely get to fall back on skills that I’ve learned well, used often, and perfected.
And … when I leave glitches in my projects, making ME think I earned a grade of “B+” or “A-,” I always wonder ….
What if I did that project again. Would I get an “A?”
So …. I’m making my wife a box, based on the same design as one that I made for my grandmother … but … that winded up being for my mother:
And … in three days’ work … here’s the completed project, before I put the finish on it. It’s a pine top and bottom with a book matched red oak mid-section.
The top has a combination Roman Ogee and roundover profile; the bottom is chamfered . I’m giving myself an “A,” on this one, because I WAS able to correct the mistakes I made on the first one.
Which makes me feel just that much better about how my future in woodworking will go :-)
This one’s going to be for my wife, Diana….
Thanks for looking !
