Barb asked me if I ever showed this on Lumberjocks.

We were going to our cabin today, but it’s raining with possible storms,

so I decided to post this today. I hope you aren’t getting tired of seeing my old projects.

It seems like there’s no end to them.

I don’t remember exactly when this was made, but I estimate about 1970.

This is made from 3/4” Mahogany corner molding from leftover pieces form a paneling project.

I used 1/16” plexiglass in the windows.

The overall size of it is, 4 3/4” wide X 8 1/2” tall

The small spalted Basswood vase is also an old undated project.

Thanks Neil, not much goes to waste in my shop.

I guess you’d have to call me a “Wood Miser”.<(:O}#

Keep posting these old projects, Dick.

The Mona Lisa is an old project too, but people are still lining up to see it!
