This was a late night project that was completed in just a few hours. The base is made from walnut with a Danish oil and shellac finish. The back is a scrap piece of spalted silver maple from a tree that was cut down in my backyard. The base was cut to size then I used a forestner bit to shape the corners then used a roman ogee bit on the router table to produce the decorative edge. The back piece is only about 1/8” inch thick. It is also finished with danish oil then clear coated with shellac. A small stop groove was filed into the base in order to hold the back piece then it was glued in with CA glue. I also waxed the base before glueing to prevent any excess glue from sticking to the base.
I am finding it hard to part with the things that I create so this will remain in my posession as do most of my obsessions…uh I mean creations. :-)
