Fairly straightforward project here.
One piece of walnut, routered out, chiseled, sanded, and finished.
Never having made anything with a router before, this is my first project using one. I love my new Bosch 1617-variable speed router! I purchased the combo. and used the plunge router base for this project.
Hadn’t really done any chisel work on something like this either and am starting to get the hang of it.
I finished the wood with 3-applications of Watco Danish Oil (Natural) and then let it dry for 3-days. This morning, I put 2-coats of Johnson’s Paste Wax on it. The first coat, I used a cotton rag, then buffed it out with 0000 steel-wool. The second coat of wax was applied with the steel wool, then buffed out with a fresh steel wool pad, again 0000.
