I made another one today. No new design, just an alternative copy. There are so many ways to tweak this design.
The body is simply Found Mahogany. ‘Found Mahogany’ comes from Virginia, specifically from a banded bundle of offcuts from the manufacturing of molding & trim. I cut a very very thin groove and inserted a strip of Poplar as an accent. Cut that smooth to the surface and proceeded to groove the trough for cards. Once the profile is created, it is simply a matter of making one corner of a picture frame, sanding off one corner, and then ’slapping it on a base’ of some kind. The base of this is Oak of some kind, I believe. But it does look a little different. Enjoy.
Edit: The more I look at the base the more I think it can’t be Oak. Anybody want to take a stab at identifying it?
