First time working with figured maple – it schooled me -especially at the planer!
Started off following a woodcraft plan but soon diverged. The wife says it looks like a little coffin, like a rat coffin maybe… Pretty swanky rat coffin if you ask me.
While hollowing out the underside of the lid, I lost hold of it and it went ricocheting (SP?) around the shop, I couldn’t get all the digs out at that point, so it’s a little “broken in” probably only noticeable enough to remind me to use the feather boards next time :)
But it was a fun little project and I learned a lot.
Thanks for looking
