I haven’t posted in a long time due to starting to learn how to carve, and that’s taken all my spare time. Here’s my latest project though. This is a necklace box I made for my wife, for our first anniversary. Nothing flashy, just simple so as not to take away from the actual gift (the necklace). Made from Hickory, stained with Mahogany Minwax gel stain. I lined it with an adhesive backed felt since I wasn’t able to find true flock locally. I learned a LOT about my router during this project (it pretty much was brand new since I don’t think I ever used it since I bought it 8 months ago to use on my homemade dovetail jig that fell through). Like all projects, I saw plenty of room for improvements, but for the time crunch I was in, and the lack of experience with my router, I’m pleased with the end results. Any and all critiques (good and bad) are appreciated and not taken personally.
