I bought some ‘scrap’ chunks of redwood from some guys who cut guitar blanks in N. California. I finally have a bandsaw big enough to resaw the wood. I hadn’t made a box with this type of top for a few years, but this size box (12” x 12” x 5”) needed something different. Curly Redwood for the sides and bottom. Redwood Burl for the top. Natural Danish Oil for the finish. The other box is Redwood Burl for the box and Cottonwood Burl for the top. The third box is Curly Fir and Curly Redwood. Finally got my new shop how I want it and busy getting ready for Shows. I might do a group shot of the work so far, but too many to post. Retirement is great. Lots of time to play in the shop!!
-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!
