This was a last minute project I made for my good friend, and fellow Lumber Jock Mike (Cozmo35). I came up with the idea after seeing a few of these posted up here on Lumber Jocks and thinking “I know I want one… Im sure Mike would too”....lol
We made a special road trip last Saturday (I have a blog up My North East Texas Lumber Jocks Tour) to visit him and his family and I was able to personaly hand it to him….
The entire tote including the mortised in bottom is made of cherry. The shaped handle grip and center divider is walnut. The dovetails are mitered on the bottom and all hand cut (I am really beginning to like these hand cut dovetails). Due to time constraints the finish is simply two good soaks of BLO then buffed out.
Im sure Im missing something, but I just wrote a mile long (at least it seemed that way to me) blog about the trip and I’m used up….lol
Thanks for checking it out… I got to say this was one of the more enjoyable projects I have done in a while.
