After seeing Montes post on “Not fit to Burn Box it reminded me of when I was working at a Cubby House building business.
The owner John made some very up market Cubby Houses, some were Western Red Cedar.
One day I saw all the off cuts of WRC in a bin and asked what he was going to dowith them?
Burn them in his stove was his reply!
Oh they will smell very nice I replied
At the end of the day I asked if I could have eight pieces to build something , he said sure help yourself.
So I selected a few pieces of material and went home, over the weekend I sawed them up butt jointed some of them together to make the lids.
And the rest is in the photos
The frames are rabbeted together with contrasting timber back filled in the remaining grooves.
The names were cut with my scroll saw along with the greyhound, no prizes for guessing where I got the greyhound profile from!
I lined the one for Alma, but left the CCAF bare as I thought he would use it in the shop.
When I returned and gave it to John you could have knocked him over with a feather when he saw the result.
I think he took it home for the lounge room!
