Now that the shop is finally finished I’m finally making some sawdust. Since it has been a year since I did anything with most of my equipment I thought I would start of with something small. I haven’t seen many door bell covers that really express the G&G concept so I started tinkering around and wound up using 1/2” cherry for the box with walnut plugs and a stylize walnut “grille” that rests on maple supports to provide an old style radio look over the opening for the chime sound.
I was able to incorporate most of the usual tools and methods I use from design through finishing and while there are a few mistakes, it will work just fine. I had forgotten how much time all of the details can take but how nice they look once completed. Fortunately, woodworking is like riding a bicycle, once you learn how to do it you never forget.
