OK, so posting anything in the same week as my friend David, is like performing on the Ed Sullivan show, RIGHT AFTER THE BEATLES…...Forget about it !!!
But all the materials in this project were headed for the landfill and I figured I’d give them a little more time before they were through.
I’m getting a kick out of goofing around with that router template pattern maker too.
This is like a United Nations box. The frame is Oak. The bottom is Baltic ply. The lid is Mahogany and the trim is Walnut. The cast-offs from a cabinet shop and a large stamping plant are my main sources and they are real nice people. The prices are right too…..
I’m going to keep practicing….bear with me..

Thanks for looking.

That’s a very nice assembly of odds and ends. This is a perfect example of why you should never throw wood away.

If that’s practice, I can’t wait to see the performance.

What a nice title! “United Nations box”. A great creation out of scrap.

Eric,
I know what you mean about posting after David… but you have one nice piece here!
I love the dove tails, the combination lends itself to nice contrast, and the price was right!
Nice work.
