I had a couple pieces of scrapwood, so I decided to make a Christmas present for someone. It is about 10W x 4H x 6D
The sides are cherry and the lid and 4 corners are walnut. The lid is hinged with dowels and I plugged the legs to look like a dowel constuction. (although it is pinned and glued)
The legs were a challenge for me as I wanted a tapered look. I started with solid 1.5×1.5 blocks, dadoed the L and then tapered from top to bottom on the belt sander as it laid on it’s side
I was struggling with how to decorate when I stumbled on a few miscellaneous antler pieces. I found one to use liike a knob and ground a flat spot. (grinding antlers REALLY smells bad….)
Then I burnt the deer head on the front.
It has an oiled finish.
Overall I am pretty happy with it. I am thinking about lining the interior with velvet.
