Very cool. What did you use to split it? Band saw, hand saw, chisel’s…?

Very nice. I did one a month or so ago for my wife’s iPad. Definitely a fun, quick build!

Thanks guys.

Murch: I ran a 12 TPI carpenters saw right down to the joints. I had to fuss with the joints a bit more with a chisel.

I’ve thought about doing one of these eventually. How hard did it end up being.

Great work.

Texchappy: About 2 hours total. I plan on doing a few more with miniature clocks in the base, and some brass inlay.

Hi Shipwreck.

Consider it stolen. Right into my favorites file.
