Ok, so I have played around with power tools long enough. Now it's time to make something useful.
I will post pictures along the way.
The plan is to make a mahogany box large enough for six acrylic racks of chips and some cards. I plan on sanding and finishing the sides before gluing together.
After assembly, I am going to rip 1/4" out of the corners and insert a redheart edge. Redheart is harder and more durable.
The lid will be African Bubinga (rosewood) around the edge, with mahogany and redheart inlays.
I also want to use some speedcloth to line the bottom.
The basis of the box:
The start of the lid:
Three sticks of bubinga with some redheart and mahogany.
I am practicing with scraps to test pore fillers and stains.
