My dad got me some flexcut chip carving chisels for my birthday. These are really nice! I would recommend them to anyone. I couldn’t leave them in the plastic package, so I whipped this up quickly out of some scraps. I got this super ugly piece of cherry. Very light- almost poplar colored and no figure. I decided to resaw a piece for the top. It actually looks kind of nice in the middle!
I ran a little low on cherry, so I didn’t have enough room to rabbet the bottom in. It’s just a shop box so I wasn’t worried.
Cut off lid, purple heart splines, and a random mix of cherry and butternut on the bottom. The dividers are hard maple. Finish is brushed shellac.
