Just to prove that I do in fact still spend a bit of time in the shop, these are a few things I've been working on recently. The first is a recipe box I made for my MIL for Christmas:
Curly maple, cherry aniline dye and shellac. I actually made a second one, virtually the same for my SIL for Christmas as well.
This next one is a coffee grider from LV. I just finished it up today:
Cherry, again finished with amber shellac.
And this last one is a 'couch table':
I'm in the process of making another one, that will nest inside this one when not in use. The splines were originally going to be dovetailed, but I muffed one of the cuts so I just slotted them instead. Wood is maple and padauk, finished with waterbased poly. I'm not entirely happy with the colours of this one, but it's sure nice to have a place to set a cup of coffee.
Thanks for looking,
