Well for those that know me, it’s clear this Back-yard remodel has been taking alot of my time. (almost done)
I have been taking a “Intro Woodworking Class at Cerritos Collage.” (it’s required too take they’re more advanced classes :<( ... )
This was the final exam required. I made this Tool-box out of Hard maple and Black Walnut I had left in my shop. I laminated the handle and the ends are box joints as I’m sure you know. I have a sliding tray that I incorporated in the box. The dimensions of the box are roughly 20 inches by 10. Not sure I’ll use this, but I do like it.
My wife has been on me about buying a Branding Iron for all the projects I make and sell. After much discussion of me feeling its was a waste of 90 bucks I finally bought one. I’m still learning the timing and burn rate, but I must thank her! I love it and it adds even more pride applying this to something you have made.
These are 3 more cutting boards going into the finish stage today for orders from customers. Can’t seem to make these fast enough.
Boy it feels good to get some time in the shop!
Thx for looking and all comments and improvement ideas welcome.
