I think I’m the third lumberjock who has posted these. The WoodWhisperer has extensive information on making these. They are a great way to learn hand tools. I made 4 of them for Christmas presents. I had originally intended to keep the last one for our house, but realized I forgot about the inlaws. So I ended up with none of them. Oh well, it feels good for others to enjoy your work. I kept the templates anyway.

Very nice. I have made my templates but not the frame yet. Hope mine look as good.

Looks great! Does this mean you’re going to make another for yourself?

Thanks guys. I used african mahogany for 3 of them and Lyptus for the other. The african mahogany was the clear winner. I used Peart’s finishing schedule on all of them. The Lyptus looked dull, uniform, and browner. I probably won’t make another. If I do, it’ll be bigger like for a mirror above a vanity.

Have your say...
