Here’s an easy shadow box that may give you an opportunity to use some of that fancy wood you’ve been saving. I used a 2’ zerbrawood board. The rest is MDF. The light cost me 4 bucks.

Great video Steve.
I got a good chuckle with the music. It reminded me of the video you did after comments about using a tripod lol!

The project came out great too. I like the idea with the light and mirror.

Thanks!

Steve, couldn’t really get with the music, I was hoping for something like Ricky Nelson’s “Garden Party”.

Seriously nice shadow box, though!

The music was great, and the project was greater. You always put a smile on our faces.

I laughed! Thanks.

And good idea, once I get my shop back together there are a number of things I’m going to have to put together shadow boxes for.

Great job with the music. Love the project as well.
Try dampening your figured wood and take very light passes with the planner. That might help.

Awesome – the music had me cracking up. Love how you respond to your critics. ;-)

The next time I make the drive from SFO to Santa Rosa I am going to have to swing by and buy you a beer.

I think I need to start taking non-copyrighted, royalty-free requests. Ha!

@FreidasDad: Interesting…just dampening the wood will help with planing? Cool! I’ll try that.
