I thought I’d try my hand at something small for a change, and my pencil kept rolling off the desk, so I came up with this idea.
I usually make big things, as you know, and there were new challenges here – how do you hold a strip of wood less than an inch wide while you route at it etc? Still – sanding time was measured in minutes rather than days, so that’s a bonus.
In the cosmic scheme of things it didn’t come out too badly, and, as you can see, it does hold a pencil ok!
The last picture is before the finish (thin varnish) was applied – I’d much rather it had stayed like that, but I’m fairly sure the “pure white” is the dust that would have gone away anyway.
Base is oak, columns ash, sides I found on the dump, I think ash too.
