Holy cow (no pub intended) you’ve been busy. Very nicely done. Love the color combinations.

You’ve raised the bar Andy. I’m honored. Wow. I really like the right-hand two-tone one. The others look good too. Now I’m gonna haf to try some flat ones. I have some Mahogany that is gonna look real good tomorrow.

Monte, Have you ever seen a cow at a pub? Ha ha.

Cows sometimes stop in between their night shift at Mini Mart and stopping to get their welfare & WICKED checks

Well looks like every one has said it all, cows in bars looking for crosses a hijacker is on the loose, Monte’s lips are sealed, oh and your crosses are awesome too :)

And I think I know which lady Woodbutcher is referring to, lets hope Andy’s postings passes her by.

Beautiful work Andy

Those are nice. I really like the one on the left with the tapered sides.

Rod, That’s why I posted these. Dan, Those tapers are the offcuts from the quilt rack tapered arms! (ready made) My favorite is the big one in the center (Arkansas cherry, 3/8 roundover all the way around, and shop made Jatoba dowels). These are fun and quick (and gave me an excuse to buy a keyhole router bit!). I am working on another box made completely from other project offcuts. My mama always said: “waste not, want not”. Rance, My photography sucked today: those 2 toned ones arent really flat. The redwood in the center is 1” thick and the wood around the edges is 5/8”( I got that idea from yours).
