« Part 6: thinking aloud Part 7 of dust stuff series Part 8: check this one out »

If you read the blog earlier I wasn’t sure what I wanted to build next. I decided to work on two boxes.
One will be from Bubinga and one from Wamara (Guyana Rosewood). It’s the first time I have worked with both woods. The Bubinga is a pleasure so far, while the Wamara is extremely dense and hard. I think it will be worth replacing all my blades because of how pretty it is going to be.

I am not so much doing something new as trying to do everything better. That should be a challenge in itself.

Anyway, I am sure that is enough rambling to bore you all.

Until next time

I will be interested in seeing these when you finish them….especially the rosewood one. Your boxes are always very well done.

Thanks J, just looking to do something a little different. I’ve had the wood for these boxes just not the time. Now I have the time. I still have a cabinet to build for my router table and a stand for my new work bench, but I got burned out on cabinets with the bookcases. By the time I finish these boxes I should be ready to finish the stuff for the shop. It’s good to change it up a bit.
