This is my latest model made mainly of NZ Kauri and Walnut. Tyers are ebonized Mahogany. Thanks to Crowie for his help. This is another model that has already been sold to raise money for charity. I am very lucky that I have found a model collector who would like every model I produce for his collection and he is prepared to pay a fair price knowing that the money is going to a good cause.
Made from quarter sawn Ash, dovetailed corners, dust seal around the lid. Made to house a Stanley No. 71-1/2 Router plane. Added labels to let me know what is in the box. Raised panel in the lid.Nice weekend project. Stain is called Gunstock. So far, just one coat of amber shellac. labels were downloaded from the internet. Bright brass hardware.
A barn quilt I made for our house. Each piece of wood has a meaning to our family. The black walnut is from a tree that was in the yard of our first house, The oak is from my grandpa's shop, the white is cedar and red stained maple is from my cousins land, the blue is cedar found from our current house that was it's original siding and the corners are purple heart because we like it!
