This set of three oak pieces were made as a gift for our friend who lives in Rhode Island a retired teacher. It was made from scraps of oak left over from old oak doors I had in my kitchen when I remade new ones. There is a strip of walnut glued between two pieces of oak to form the top as a wave.The original design was one I had seen years before in WOOD. So just a little scroll saw work and glue were all I needed. The finish is simple..one coat of linseed oil, two coats of shellac,,sanded and wiped…two coats of lacquer,,,steel wool with lemon oil. The boxes are for letters, pencils and maybe stamps or addresses torn from envelopes.
