Another fun box build, This time from African Mahogany. The sides are scalloped but run thru the TS at an angle like the last ones but with the blade at 45 degrees for a different profile than just round. Spines from Ipe hardly show but the feet or base I like. They were cut from the same board as the whole box was then on the router table to get the profile you see. Next on the drill press a hole at each end of the foot followed with an arch on the band saw to complete the base. Lift off lid (again, lazy I know) This time I tried starting with spray lacquer to speed things up but finished it off with hand rubbed poly. The shine has many flaws as I just don’t have the time to get it perfect. Maybe should have waited longer to buff but 8 hrs of compound and buffing on a Sunday is enough for me! Using the Ridgid oscillating sander to clean up some old planes has been a fast way to get to a hollow grind on some old plane irons. Now a lot of time to spend hand lapping a lot of chisels and plane irons on the wet stones. Sunday was made for time to sharpen tools for the next week. Does anyone have an elbow for sale? I can’t seem to slow down! Thanks for having a look.
