Hi All I thought I would share a WIP of a commission I made last year. It was a currency box and was made to hold notes on one side and an inner lid is opened to reveal the coin section. The inside of the inner lid had an area to hold passport and credit cards. It was fitted with 2 locks for a partnership. The box was made from walnut and the motif on the lid was from curly maple. Lined in green suede and fitted with good quality hardware. The exterior was french polished. Enjoy ...

As some of you know from a previous posts my shop is a free-standing building behind my house that doubles as a playroom for Dad and his WW as well as son and his music. They were practicing the other night when I was in the shop cleaning. There’s been several blogs about what kind of music everyone listens to in the shop but I think I can claim the only shop with live entertainment.
This is a really fun puzzle to spring on people. I’ve noticed that it is easy to take apart, but hard to put together. So I’ve been showing people the completed shape, then taking it apart without them watching. Then I stand back and watch the hilarity ensue as they wrack their brains for hours trying to put it together. If you would like to build one, here are detailed plans that Timothy Sluder drew up. Enjoy!
Here is the workbench that I talked about in the last shop tour video.
Inspired by the lightweight, high-strength components found in helicopters, Bridge City Tool Works has made a work of art that planes wood. The stainless-steel CT-17 block plane from Bridge City Tool Works is perhaps the best-looking plane I’ve ever seen.
