This is my latest project. It’s made from birdseye maple and black walnut. I’ve been buying birdseye when I found good deals. I got a sheet of plywood for $80 and some 4/4 stock for like $7bd. ft. The majority of the black walnut came from an antique bedframe that belonged to my wifes grandmother. The frame was too far gone to be repaired so I used it to make a new piece that’ll live on. It is my larges piece so far and took me a long time to build it.(I was trying to have it done for Christmas:) The maple/walnut combo just never gets old, does it? It’s just a deft waterbase poly finish. Thanks for viewing.

I think the time spent building was really worth while. It is quite clear you have spent a lot of time on the detail, very well done sir.

I’m especially impressed with the use of recycled timbers, the memory of your wifes grandmother will live on.

Stellar job on the build of the e.t c…....great craftsmanship, and great combination of the woods…I really like Maple and Walnut combined…they just seem to off-set one another, and together are beautiful….thanks for posting, and to honor your wifes grandmother…..a very nice jester….
