This is the completed puppet theater I built for the kids this Christmas. It features basic frame and panel construction with arched tops for the front and detachable side wings. The front arched panel is birdseye maple laminated over cherry and features purpleheart and walnut comedy/tragedy mask instarsia.
The complementary puppet tree is made of 8/4 ash and 1/2” dowels with 1” dowel caps to protect the puppets as they’re slid on and off. The whole thing was finished with 4-6 coats of Homer Formby Tung Oil finish.
I’d say it was a hit!
This project was a blast to build and even more fun to deliver!
