These are a few more of my projects built within the last two years. The pics from left to right top to bottom are:

#1 – 1 of 3 matching Walnut medal hanging boards.
Last year I started running regularly and was training for a marathon. Having found lots of ideas (expensive) of displaying my running achievements I came to the conclusion that I should make it myself. This is my display taken about 6 months ago. I made 3 of these. The other two were for my running partners. The dowels are Oak and they were finished with Minwax Poly Shades Walnut and Polyurethane.

#2 – 1 of 4 matching Cherry medal hanging boards.
Similar to the first pciture except these were made for my wife and son, a coworker and his daughter. These were made by recycling the seat from some broken dining chairs. The dowels are Oak and it was finished with Cherry Stain and Polyurethane.

#3 & 4 – 3 of 4 matching walnut keepsake boxes before staining.
These were the first items I made out of walnut. The corners were mitered and the top was routed to set down inside. Very basic and turned out nice. These were for my wife, mother, sister-in-law and my grandmother. I can’t seem to find any finished pics at this time. they were all finished with Minwax Poly Shades Walnut and Polyurethane.

#5 – 1 of 2 Walnut Dresser Valet Boxes prior to staining.
I made two of these. One was given to my new brother-in-law at his wedding. It was finished with Minwax Poly Shades Walnut and Polyurethane. The other still needs to be finished for myself. I’m such a procrastinator.

#6 – Walnut Mirror Frame for my Aunt.
My Aunt asked my to make a mirror with a small shelf and this is before putting the mirror in place. It was assembled with pocket hole screws and finished with Minwax Poly Shades Walnut and Polyurethane.

Thanks for looking as well as any and all comments!

Ditto on the boxes, plus the mirror frame. Good work.
