Woodworking Wednesday

Here’s a new feature on my blog that I’ve been thinking of doing for some time, Woodworking Wednesdays.  I’ll share a photo or two of a project in my shop or a short post on some woodworking subject each week.

Often, I’ll have a shop project that doesn’t really fit into my normal Sunday essay so this will give me a chance to keep you updated on what’s happening in the shop and more importantly it gives me a reason to get out there and get something done.  Can’t let my followers down, now can I?

This week I put the final touches on this fretwork box with marquetry on the bottom and inside top lid.

Top of the box. Yes, it did take a long time to cut.

The box is going to a newlywed couple so it had to have love birds.
