My uncle remodeled his kitchen a year or so ago and gave me a truckload of oak trim for free. I decided to make him a Wisconsin badgers themed shut the box game for Christmas. The oak is part of his old kitchen, and I added some padauk which compliments it quite nicely. Half blinds just so I don’t get to rusty. A little bit of felt marquetry to finish it off. Thanks for reading and happy new years!

Red, we didn’t have cd’s when I was in High school!! I built a gun cabinet.

Nice work Wally. I like the half blinds.

Keep after it Wally. You got the squills man. Red better watch out, there’s an up and coming guy who can rival his pace of work.

Haha Red, you’ve turned into quite the furniture maker now though, so hopefully were not opposites and I go the other way lol. Thanks Stef and Don.
