This was just a little weekend time filler. It’s a bit of a departure from my usual style. I’m calling it “Katrina” because it’s built up on pilings to protect its contents from the next flood. :-)

Construction is walnut and maple, with birdseye maple veneer on top. Finish is Danish oil followed by three coats satin wipe-on poly.

Nice Box. Those pilings are quite sturdy. Make sure your levys are in good shape.

Man Charlie,\
You just keep turning them out. I wish I could fill my time with such fine results. Roz.

Good idea. Now if we can just get that idea across to those that live in those low areas.
