Got the sides pressed and cut to length. I taped the scaled template to the sides to show the concept. The back will be layered and have a carved belt. The Logo I am working on (red circle) will be inlayed in the top left corner. I still need to cut the parts for the back and lay them up. Then I can inlay the circle and the letters you see drawn. Then on the chest section there will be an elaborate marquetry pattern, and is meant to look like a shirt under the gi. I have many more weeks left, but it’s going well so far. On the front side there will be a dovetailed drawer and possibly a door. I may leave it open with a shelve or two.
Thanks for looking.
