Well this is the beginning of a thank you card that i am making for someone. another woodworker who helped me out a lot (i won’t say their name just because I don’t want them to find out and just for their sake). this is going to be a cool card made out of some scrap mahogany that i had around. I am really going to try and show off here showing off all and every woodworking skill i have and making something that will be really nice.
now to start off i just took a board of mahogany and cut two pieces to glue together. i chose the way that the grain went best and jointed the sides to a nice fit with a small pass with a block plane and cleanup with a scraper. here the boards are gluing up.
Then when it was done gluing up i flushed up the joint with a card scraper
and sanded the front as i will have to add some more material to the top for a detail i am doing. it will be hard to sand that later on. you will also see what that other material is for in the second post.
and here the other material is gluing up.
so thats all i have for now. I hope to get another post done by Sunday with the laying out of the detail on top. i will also say what that detail is in the second post. i would tell now but i only have a general idea of what i want the detail to be. i want it to be like the bonnet crown molding on top of some pieces. i need to find a good picture of it first though so i can lay it out. well thats it for now.
i don’t know why but for the life of me i can not figure out how to get pictures on this site. any help would be appreciated (and yes i tries the exclamation points)
