« Part 98: Best Edge Banding Around! Part 99 of Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring series Part 100: Progress: Raised Dog Bowl Holders - The Field Test »

Finally making some progress on the gift building. The neighbor’s two year old is into tools, so I made for him a child’s size carpenter’s tool box. The sides and bottom are red oak, the ends hard maple, and the handle and pins out of poplar dowels.

The tea light sets are going out to friends and family. The pines bases were cut from the staves of a large cable spool. While the holders will accept tea light candles, for safety sake I am using their LED counterpart.

Next: staining the two dog bowl holders…
