Woodworking has interested me for sometime now and I happen to work with a very good woodworker (RKW). I needed a place to keep my logo golf balls and didn’t really like the ones I found on-line and in local stores, so what better way to get started in woodworking! I didn’t have any tools to speak of what so ever, but Randy did. We built this in the week-ends and after work. We used maple and walnut for the wood and used sliding dovetails for the shelves. Then we thought some green flock wood look nice, sort of emulate a golf green. It really turned out far better that I could have ever imagined. I would like to take the credit for this one, however Randy really did all the work as far as setting up the tools and I just pushed the wood through the blades! A very good learning project for me though, thanks Randy. By the way I was very slow in posting this project, this was actually done last summer!
