Well the most recent project has yeilded a shadow box for a guidon to be placed in it as a gift. I did some different things with this project than previous ones. First, I used Jatoba as the main lumber for this and I was very pleased with it. Second, I did the splines out of cherry in the center with paduak on both sides of the cherry. I am not sure why I did this but I did. That alone took me all day with a dozuki saw, glue and a bunch of blue tape to make the paduak and cherry splines and then fit them in the slots cut for them. I have mixed feelings about the look they gave me and I am not sure if I will do it again. I also put a paduak border around the front to give it a little wow factor as paduak stands out from the jatoba. Overall a simple project that the SgtMaj we gave this to really enjoyed, which is always the goal. And I can’t forget to mention my nosey companions that jumped in the pictures because they thought what was on the chair was for them to chew on.
