A nice little job combining traditional jointing techniques with the biscuit jointer and routers. It seemed to take a phenomenal amount of timber, but worth it I think. People tell me that it is beautiful. The object inside is a mounting batten – I try and think of most things.

Finished with the scrapers, which seem to give a superior result, then Danish oil, a final rub down and wax polish.

This is designed with a small CD collection in mind that might be kept in a study or bedroom, using a small bit of wall space.

I like it Stanley! I prefer to join boards to create larger boards. Its challenging, it allows you to save wood that would normally his the waste pile, and its rewarding if you hit a home run.

Your design is simple but elegant, and I like the finish! Good job sir!

Have your say...
