Project Information

This was one of the most difficult projects I've done to date. I had a lot of small parts to make up plus I was asked to build 5 of them. This was one of the best reasons for making up my saw sled, I could cut small parts safely, accurately and repeatedly. The round center area in the bottom was done by a CNC machine; it was fun to watch it get done…it's good to have friends in high places. The 'finger' at the top rear is there to keep the cup from falling over while being carried. I am most proud of the corner joints, I bought a "box corner locking bit" for the router to accomplish the corners. It took some practice but the joints came out close to perfect in my estimation, the corners look like one piece of wood. To strengthen the door corners, I spline cut slots and installed small pieces of padauk wood I found in a junk pile at one of the stores. The drawer is there too store a small note book. The project was done for a friend of mine's church.

Those look great, nicely done frame and panel assembly on the sides, with good miters for the corners. The front panel is nice with the spline cut. Overall well done.

Very nice. The only thing that caught my eye was the vertical grain on the bottom sides. The joinery is excellent, especially having to make five of them. An excellent production run

Excellent job, those look great and I'm sure the church is blown away. You have some serious talent for only working with wood for less than 2 years.

Thanks Mark, I wondered about the bottom myself so I asked what the people wanted and went by their wishes, but you're right, I wondered about the grain direction myself.
