(I call it “Vintage” since, even though it’s only a week old, it already looks old and beaten up!)
I thought it might be amusing to try to wrap some veneer around a 90° (slightly more, in fact) curve. Well, like Queen Victoria, I was not amused. Aside from the clamping difficulty (no veneer vacuum available), it was a nightmare to sand. Still, no matter, it was just an experiment, and, even if all the veneer peels off, I’ll still have a little pine box!
I made it solid, then contoured it, then veneered it, then sawed the top off, finished it, and added the handle.
Thanks go, again, to Gene with helpful veneering hints – I think I might soon have to work out how to ship a crate of Port to Canada.
