Another Craftsman doorbell cover, but this time made for a customer. They found my previous build on my blog, and wanted one for their home. It was a lot of fun going back and re-working a previous piece. This came out better, of course, as I learned better ways to approach it, and my skills have improved.

Quater-sawn red oak, tint dye, amber shellac, and then dark paste wax.

I blogged about this build on my site here.

Just hand it on a nail or screw. I put a little notch on the underside of the top for that.
