The wife (YiaYia) asked if I could make a small display case for my mother’s violin tuning fork (circa 1935) and this is what I came up with.
The frame is laminated curly Maple and Wenge with the front face beveled at about 30 degrees and with Koa miter splines. 1/8” bamboo skewers hold the fork against the Baltic Birch back panel and the sandwiched packet is held in place with 1/8” hard maple strips and brass screws.
The finish is simply a spray lacquer with a coat of paste wax. The tuning fork now rightly resides with Mom’s metronome and violin on the gallery wall. It was a small project, but something I was looking for after the last project and my grand daughter is patiently waiting for an American doll bunk bed that she texted me a picture of last week, so off I go.
Thanks for look’in in and keep the sawdust a fly’in.
