A local business was kind enough to give me a bunch of walnut scraps. They were all about 1/2 inch by 2” x 16” or so. Mixed in were a few maple and pine pieces. Nothing too big, but pretty wood. After getting it home I realized it’s pretty small to use in most of my projects but I decided to glue some pieces up and make a small box for the guy that gave it to me. Tung oil, Two coats of poly, and a coat of paste wax.
Very simple, nothing fancy at all. I used walnut for the sides of the box and pine for the top. I made a tray of walnut with a glued inset of maple. very light and kinda cute. No chain or stops on the hinges though. It’s just a token thank you. Skill level low, but growing with each new project.
People that work in wood seem to be a nicer, more appreciative kind of folks. I want to pass on some of the kindness that has been passed to me.
