Here is a project I just found as I was going through my Junk to throw away. I had this stored in a box so it is kinda warped now from all the weight on it, I totally forgot I had this or made it. It is a neat project for a woodworker to display his portfolio of work for future clients or for the family and friends when they drop by. This is a nice project to get your wife involved in with presenting your pictures. (Women love the scapbooking thing, there is a whole industry for it!)
This is my first attempt at resawing and bookmatching some Birdseye maple. Part of the learning curve and I made plenty of mistakes. I made it with hardware I purchased at Lee Valley & Veritas and it is simple to make.
The size can be anything you like. I made mine roughly 12” x 12” x 1/4” and assembled it with tiny Piano hinge and chicago bolts. The finish is Danish Oil. I never did get around to waxing it!
If you want to showcase your woodworking projects in style maybe this is the next project for you.
