January, 2013—Another honey-do project completed. The idea here was to make a display for some sea shells that could hang like a picture.

Wood is plywood and poplar. Tools used: planer for the poplar frame, router for the plywood cut-outs, power miter saw for the corners, table saw for a slot in the frame to hold the plywood, hand-plane to ease the frame edges, and palm sander. Water-based primer followed by latex paints, then a water-based satin poly over everything.

Shells glued on with hot glue and two-part epoxy. Lettering by Victoria. This is now on display in the bedroom, on the display shelf I made some time ago.
