Haven’t posted for many moons. Working an a reverse negative of a box plan in the October 05 issue of WOOD. Plan calls for curly maple for the carcase and wenge for the accents. I rummaged through the cut offs and used walnut for the carcase and maple for the accents. Got some seriously out-of-tune and dull tools, so there’s a good bit of fussing and gap filling to do. ;)
