Hello LJ’s

After using a lot of power tools I thought it was nice to use the handtools some more on a new project. It was very fun to make and I’ll be making another one soon.

Wood: curly maple , laburnum, rosewood
Finish : 1. linseedoil 2. 3 layers of danish oil 3. wax

Thanks for watching

I love laburnum it doesn’t come in big pieces as the trees are usually very small you did a great job.I’m jealous of your woodbuying abilities LOL just joking Alistair

@scotsman: buying wood is also a hobby!! I also sell a lot of wood to other woodworkers in the netherlands.
