This is a Christmas gift that I made for my bosses wife. The woods are purpleheart and maple and finished with Arm-R-Seal Satin. The piece measure 15” long x 9” high x 5” wide and the planks are 1/2” thick.
The joint was cut at a 15° angle using a dado blade. I placed a little bit of glue and three screws to reinforce the joint. It turned out quiet strong! I wish I would of made the base a little thicker to give it some weight, both physically and visually.
Last Christmas I made her a cutting board using purpleheart and maple and thought that it would be a nice touch to use the same woods this year.
Would love to hear any thoughts on my project. Good or bad!!
