I’ve been wanting to make a door bell cover for years with an Arts & Crafts design. I cut the wood about a month ago and finally glued it up. Made with quarter sawn oak, quick set glue and will have a clear polyurethane finish. I rushed through the assembly and made alot of mistakes that I will try not to make in the future.

Did you cut holes for the sound to escape? I can’t imagine it being very loud. If not… at my age I probably wouldn’t hear it! It looks great though.

Thanks for all of your comments. Maplerock we don’t get many visitors out in the country it is loud enough to hear still. I’m very good at repairing the mistakes.
