I have been putting the grinder to use lately, and trying out dome new things with it. I wanted one continuous line all the way around the side, to complement the the book-matched corners. It was a bit trickier than free-styling because during the sanding process it is really easy to move the line as I sanded it. Also new for me is softening the sharp peaks on the lid and blending the patterns into each other.
I really like the effect this created, and I can’t wait to get started on the next one. It seams like every project build leads to another idea, and every mistake overcome opens a new door. I think that’s why I enjoy all this so much.
Box is 8×10x4 ish, Birdseye maple and wenge, finished with 3 coats of bug bomb lacquer waxed and buffed, with a kerf hinge lid.
Hope everyone has a great Christmas… and can find a way to get thrown in the doghouse. Mine is my studio, so I don’t mind so much.
