I have been busy making boxes for summer craft shows. I recently finished 20 that are all different in type of wood or style. I also made over 20 cutting boards in a week. Haven’t taken the time to post anything. I even sold some without taking pictures. This box is Padauk and Curly Maple. Watco Danish oil for the finish- it is so easy and feels really nice. The front edge of the top extends over the front side a bit as a lift. I made a few with this style of legs and tray. One is Lacewood and Purple heart. It has been a good summer for shows. One more before I go back to teaching in 2 weeks. Then one on labor Day weekend in South Lake Tahoe. And the Plymouth Bluegrass Festival in Mid September. My wife plays Mandolin and this is a good way to support her interests. With a show every 2 weeks, this has begun to seem like a job!! But I still like seeing the end result and the feedback at shows has been great. Found some good wood sources too!!
-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!
