The cheese cutter is made from white oak, walnut, cherry and maple. The shaker boxes are made from cherry, the screwdriver handle is made from spalted maple and the pen has bubinga wood insert. I make matching cheese cutters and cutting boards for wedding gifts. The design is not as complicated as it looks it just takes three different glue ups. Glad you enjoy the items Vernon. I forgot to mention the cheese cutter is great for cutting boil eggs.

I have seen the shaker boxes made on one of the woodworking shows on PBS and I really want to try my hand at it. Of course they made them in 15 minutes – LOL. Your boxes reminded me of how elegant they are. Now I know someone that I can ask questions when I mess them up.

I want a pen like that so I can fiddle around with it and maybe write something down, occasionally.

I would call your cheese cutter a charcuterie board, especially with the cheese cutter. I like the random pattern.

Thanks for participating in the swap!!! I hope you try it again.

Earl I can send you a copy of the info on the boxes. I am going to John Wilson’s shop this weekend to learn how to make crown boxes. Crown boxes are the round version with no top but a maple rim around the top. The boxes takes less than an hour in time twenty minutes to soak and overnight to dry and finish.

Nice. I can’t wait the see the crown boxes too. Ever since I saw these on Rough Cut last year, I’ve been wanting to try them.

Question: do you have to use air dried or even greenwood for this or can you use kiln dried wood?

Excellent work on all these Woodmaster! Beauty and tradition combine and shine :-) I’m particularly fond of the pen.
