Last Spring I attended Wood Magazines “Weekend with Wood” in Des Moines IA. One of the sessions was on veneering and the instructor was Terry Moore. There were actually two back to back sessions “Basic Veneering” followed by “Advanced Veneering”. Terry is an amazing teacher and artisan. The “Advanced Veneering” session was the last session of the weekend and at the conclusion Terry Moore had a drawing for some of the examples and sample projects that he had completed during his sessions. For once I was lucky and won a 22” X 12” piece of bendable plywood that Terry had veneered with Curly Maple. Now all that I needed to do was to figure out how I would use it. The piece sat in my shop for 6 months while I completed some other projects, all the time wondering what I was going to do with it. Well, finally I decided to use the piece as the panel in the top of a Sea/Treasure Chest. Another bonus for me was that I could finally use an experimental set of 3 wood hinges I had made a year ago but had never had a project to use them on. The finished chest measures 23 1/2” wide, 13 1/2” deep and 15 1/2” high. I used walnut to construct the chest with panels re-sawn from some curly and birds eye maple. I lined the inside with cedar paneling and my wife made a finished cloth panel for the inside of the lid. Now I just have to figure out what I am going to do with it.
