My wife is a teacher and every year her class gives a gift to the local fire fighters to show appreciation for all they do. Typically it’s a basket of snacks and stuff to eat. This year I was recruited to build these. Pleased with the way they came out. I used rattle can poly for the first time on them, and to be honest it was a bit more tedious than expected.

Thanks for looking

Nice looking boards, and good on you for helping the fire fighters/medics of your area.

Yes tedious is a word you could use to describe the trying to get protection, and just the right amount of slide on the boards at the same time.

They look really neat… shame only 1 picture slot was used… I guess film is expensive nowdays.

Not surprised… it takes an age to cut with a can…

C’mon Monty, just a tad more details. Mitre, dovetail, finger, butt joins..? Stencil used? Laser/CNC snuck in? Was the timber stained or soaked in sheep blood (sorry shepherds). Red and black paint from separate cans or were they mixed in the can? I need to take a break before I finish asking all possible questions.

Hey, sorry. The frame is common pine mitered. It was actually the first time I used my table saw to cut miters. Usually I’d use my miter saw but the TS was much more accurate. The panels are maple ply. I decided to pass of the sheeps blood this time and went with furniture grade paint. The design was a stencil drawn and cut out freehand and chalk paint was used, both black and red. I didn’t get good shots of the build, was on a time crunch and it slipped my mind. Next project ;)

Sorry for the sorry, for the sorry, Monty.... I hate reading but when someone is proud of their project (which you are… and deservingly so… damn, I suck at times) It’s nice to get some more detail of contributers effort. Again forgive me but what you said above, may have been the stocking filler to what the initial post lacked (and maybe a few more happy snaps that don’t need to be read)... be proud of your work young man, and if you’re an old explosion between the legs (phew) like me… still stagger proud between the vapours. I personally love to hear of how other people tackle their projects (and how THEY stuff up)... pictures help…

I do appreciate you placating my unorthodox response.

I get it, after I went back and read what I initially wrote I thought the same thing. Should have went into more detail the first time. I appreciate you commenting and wanting more.

Looks great Monty. I’m sure they will be well used and appreciated. What Dept wouldn’t love to have those. The stencil is very done and appropriate. Thanks for showing!
