Some of the stuff I made for xmas presents, Dec. 2011. A few free standing picture frames, from plans, used ‘backyard cherry’. About 6 boxes; trinket boxes, pencil boxes, a jewelery box, whatever you want to call them. Two turned screw drivers (buy the guts on sale at Harbor Freight for a buck fifty). One big honking white oak box, to hold our Rummikub game. I like to make a little something (the boxes) for my daughters teachers, they are all true angles.
I used some walnut, a fair bit of my backyard cherry, some very heavy reddish fancy stuff from god-knows what rainforest. One box is of a curly oak, darnedest oak board I’ve ever seen. One lid has some inlay. One lid is layered. Several have some wild curly maple. One has an old door knob, because it was too cold to drive to the hardware for a nice brass knob that night.
Somewhere in there (other side of the fence) are some snowflake ornaments, two Harry Potter wands, and a handful of turned tree ornaments (backyard cherry again).
