Gift for a co-worker. Maple with walnut inlay – this is an early attempt at inlay for me – turned out pretty decent. Mitres are the tightest I have ever made – thanks to my crosscut sled (how did I ever get along without it). Finsish is Danish Oil and wax. About 11 inches tall.

Merry Christmas and thanks for looking.

Nice job
How did you clamp it up?

Vince – I should have thought about that before I glued it – I ended up being the human clamp and doing it in two L-shaped halves, then human clamping again for the final glue up. Fortunately Titebond II sets up reasonably quick – my lil’ fingers were clamping, er, cramping up!

Jorge – I just used Titebond II – seems to hold OK. It shouldn’t see much stress just hanging on the wall (I hope).
