Happy New Years, yall. I figured for the new year, might as well host a thread for what we are currently working on, or finishing up. I just finished up (last night) a coat rack for SWMBO. I was tired of not having a place to hang my jacket after work, so I made this for “her.” See what I did there? Made out of cherry, with a piece of (slightly) figured maple. M&T and dado joints. Finished with Formby’s Tung oil finish, which I was not real pleased with, but it worked.




So what is it yall are working on, or just finished up in the beginning of 2016?

I’m working on getting time in the shop for something worthwhile!

My Grandson’s birthday is Tuesday and I hope to finish sanding a set of stacking blocks for him.

Wish me luck! My wife has a very long list of honey do projects for me….

My project is to finish up all of the unfinished projects laying about all over the shop. First is to get more organized and make a place for everything that doesn’t currently have a dedicated spot, improved work flow is paramount in this endeavor!

I’m planning to start on my Anarchist’s Tool Chest build. Going to go for the midsize chest recently published in Pop Woodworking:

Don’t think I’ll be able to do the marquetry lid, at least not as well as these guys :)

Jim,

Very Nice! How did you make the bow? You working on 2016 Christmas gifts already, or something else?

ste6168: I make these small (6”x8”) boxes and sell them. Making the bow is from a Steve Good pattern, Glue up the three strips of wood and drill out the 5/8” hole and then cut to shape on scroll saw. Glue three cutout pieces together to form the bow.
