Been lurking around and learning a lot here and thought it about time I put a project up. These are my first two projects. Both are Bible presentation boxes I made for friends & family.
The first one was the second one I built after gaining a bit of confidence that I would cut my fingers off. It is made of oak, walnut, and the cross is spalted pecan. It serves to operate a very primitive latch by sliding back. Must say, the pecan was so hard I had to shape it with a file.
The second box was the first I built. It’s constructed of walnut, oak, and hickory.
Will say the I hated working with the pecan, don’t much like the hickory, the oak is okay, and the walnut I like. As you can see, I’m not up on finishing yet.
The final two pics are where I get my wood.
Looking for some good criticism and hopefully to grow into some good woodworking.
