These are two projects I did for my fire station. They are a couple of years old.

The first is a Maltese Cross. We didn’t have anything outside to seperate us from the police that are on the other side of the building. It is made from scrap 2×6 I picked up off of a building lot. The grooves look good to me but I actually routed those in because I didn’t have a jointer at the time. They hide the joint lines effectively.

The second project was built to resemble the old wooden gear lockers we used years ago. We built a semi-museum in our entry way and this is part of it. The locker is simple construction of 3/4” birch plywood. I covered the front with acrylic to keep our stuff from leaving.

Both of your projects look good. I just looked at your homepage and saw where you are from. I like that part of the country. I had a friend from somewhere around there, to the West of you a little but looking at the map I can’t remember if he was from Carollton or Cedartown. We mostly went over right across the Alabama line where his grandfather owned a fishing camp on Weiss Lake. Beautiful country around there.

Both projects are great and hiding a less than perfect joint with the groove was a very smart thing to do…tricking the old eyeballs , ay ?
