Time to see if I can do two projects at once.

I started work on a shoe shine box today. Sometimes I am thankful that I can have awesome wood with which to work. I threw a little denatured alcohol on it to get an idea of what it will look like.

I glued up the panels and dimensioned the external pieces.

-- Fr. Thomas,

That is some beautiful wood! Can’t wait to see the rest of the build. Keep up the good work.

White Oak? Looks good whatever it is.

Yes. It’s White Oak and the top trim is Katalox.
