very cool…were there plans and parts you went with?

I always see these in the various supply catalogues and wonder which kit to go with…

Nice job….

I like them all – I’ve made a few out of Cocobolo, but never have thought of trying the color ply stuff.

Very nice to use the wood in two directions like that. They are both equal!!!!!!!!!!

how do you get the layered wood to hold its color ? i assume you dye it prior to glue up, turn, sand and topcoat. doesn’t the sanding remove the color ?

thanks

My dad gave me some fatherly advice right before I got married. He told me that if the wife isn’t happy, then no one is happy. So my favorite is which ever one(s) that your wife made. Hey…I’m just trying to save you from sleeping on the floor.

Have your say...
