This little dolly is for my Travel Agent who i call number 1 as she has gone the extra yards for us on deals.
I used Wenge & Huon Pine on this one, I think with good effect.
I glued up with Tightbond 111 & used cable ties as clamps, very effective.
4 different ones in this sample


I band sawed off the edges to avoid tear out on the lathe.

One thing for sure is ‘Feast Watson Master Touch’ wipe on poly gives a far superior gloss finish than ‘Minwax’ although ‘Minwax’ is good for an initial sealing coat.

Nice work, and a clever idea for clamping small pieces, I should remember for future small projects.

I like this one Tony. It reminds me of Mr. ranger. Great finish.

If you decide to do a Mountie, you won’t have far to go.
