I finally had a day when I could be alone in the workshop for a few hours. I find it so relaxing to be out there. I really wanted to try a box from Doug Stowe’s book. I came out pretty well…of course, I can see every flaw! It is made of walnut and maple and finished with danish oil. I also needed more cutting boards as the 35 or so I already made have been given away as gifts. I had some jatoba, gorgeous rosewood, birdseye maple, cherry and purpleheart. The striped ones are all good wood…that “funky” one is just a bunch of scraps I had around..threw in some teak on that one! All finished with mineral oil. What an enjoyable day!! Thanks for looking!
