Project Information

I always enjoy making things that my wife can use. I think the only thing I make for myself are jigs for the shop. The latest creation is a mahogany and maple recipe box. It's an original design that evolved on the table saw. It was initially a simple box with miter joints, but I wasn't satisfied with the plain look of the mahogany wood alone, so I added some maple pillars to both strengthen the joint and provide some interesting contrast. I then chamfered the lid top using the table saw and finished it all with danish oil.

My garage smells of rich mahogany thanks to this project :)

Beautiful work on this. Very classy looking.

I suppose you're still "suffering" though the winter in Hawaii :)

This might be my last project in Hawaii Monte. We're leaving in a few weeks… boy how the time flies!

I'll miss the perfect weather, but I look forward to many more lumber and woodworking options on the mainland.
