I’m not sure what wood this is – but the piece had been hanging around the garage for a long time. I kept going back to it and sanding it and then putting it down again. Wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it. Finally, I just decided to do something – and this is what I ended up with. It’s a piece of crotch wood, so it has the two branches – and a lot of wonderful color. I made the top swivel and decided to put a rare earth magnet to hold it closed. The larger cubby is standard band saw style. Cut off the back, cut out the inside and glue the back on. For the smaller cubby, I used a forstner bit in the drill press – and just drilled it out. It was fun to finally get something out of a favorite piece of wood. Oh – and a gratuitous picture of the cat. Thanks for taking a look.
