I have many, many things to catch up with here. I'm going to begin with a little bragging.
Back in June I did a little carving demo at the annual Gala for the Castlerock Museum of Arms and Armor. I carved a front panel for a document box out of walnut.
Just this past weekend I was part of another demo there, more focused on woodworking itself, and I decided to finish up a couple pieces to have as. ". . . and here's what it looks like when you're done." pieces. I spent last week finishing the till, lid, and turning a set of feet.
Here's the finished results.
The primary wood is black walnut, the inner till is made from cherry and the bottom is pine, (So you get that wonderful scent when you open the lid) .
The box measures approximately 20" across and 14" deep.
This small chest is also FOR SALE. I need to make more room for new pieces, (and help finance the materials for them) I'm asking $450 USD.
Send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you're interested or have more questions.
There should be a lot more actual woodworking stuff coming from me soon.
