Got my foot in the door for selling my projects at the local coffee shop so I thought something seasonal would be a good addition. Haven’t had much time for working on these side projects with it being the holiday season. Everyone wants their cabinets by Thanksgiving, then by Christmas and one last push before New Years. It doesn’t make for much free time to work on side projects. I was able to throw this, a ring box and a little mug together (hope to upload it soon).

Unfortunately I can’t upload the other ring box. I had to have it down in time for a friend to give his wife on their anniversary and forgot to even take pictures. It’s essentially the same as the Zebrano Ring Box I have uploaded except oval shaped and deeper, rather than being custom made for one specific ring.

I thought about painting the snowman white, but I love the natural grain and never had been a huge fan of painting over it. I’m quite happy with how this turned out and hope it sells easily. It’s about 5 3/4’ tall by 3’ wide and 1 3/4 deep. About the only thing I’d change is for the next one I think I’ll do red suede in the drawers and green in the shell.

Hope y’all enjoy.

well done ! I agree painting might look good but it hides the beauty of the timber.
