I may be jumping the gun, but Valentine’s Day is coming soon. Where are the rest of the heart boxes I usually see?
I cut the first 3 bigger boxes, 8” x 8” x 3.5”. I cut the next boxes from the core. 6” x 6” x 3.5”. I did another box from that core, 3’ x 3’ x 3.5”. So, 9 boxes from about 1 and 1/3 BF, plus the wood for the tops and the bottoms. The first is Walnut and Curly maple. The Redwood for the tops came from RockB, a Lumberjock from Redding. The next box is Curly Maple and Padauk, with tops of Big Leaf Maple. The 3rd set is Walnut and Padauk with 2 tops of BLM and one of Padauk. The larger boxes are hinged. Watco Danish Oil on all of them. These are going to a local place on commission for Valentine’s sales, but my wife might get one!
-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!
