Made this for my son to give as a Christmas gift. A lot of burning in the Cherry which I should have sanded out….my bad.

I used Maple and Cherry for some nice contrast and of course, the Cherry will darken over time.
2 coats of Beeswax for the finish.

Fun project and I think I’ll be making more.

May the Force be with you :O)

Hi Jim, I simply found a drawing of the Falcon on the internet and printed it off, 4 sheets to make the one picture for the size.

This is freaking awesome! One of my proudest dad moments is when my 10 year old picks a movie for movie night and its empire strikes back!

Have your say...
