I saw Charles Neil’s bombe box and project for “Wounded Warriors” and fell in love with the design. It looked challenging, so I thought I needed to try it. I started January 10th and just finished it. My oldest daughter just loves it, so the work was worth the effort. The top is hard curly maple and cherry. The sides are soft curly maple, and the bottom molding and feet are cherry. There is not as much contrast between the woods as I expected, but the result still seems ok. I learned a lot in the process of building this box, which is the fun part about woodworking. Every project brings new challenges.
So, now this daughter just bought a house and wants me to build a corner breakfast nook. That will keep me busy for the next few months!
