    Nice work! Those kinda look like box joints, no? I liked the choice of contrasting woods. What kinda of finish did you use?

    Great talent you have there, love the dovetail work with the different woods coming together. The framing of the mirror looks fantastic with the brad adding some detail.

    I have often heard that "Change is Good". If this is a fact, why does history tend to repeat itself so often. I'm guessing that it is so we can learn from our mistakes that change is good?

    OTOH, I can't play a stringed instrument and envy those who can.

    I wish it was burl, but no, it's not.

    HahahaNO. Place is a mess and I'm a pig. But I will list the stationary power tools: Jet contractor saw, Delta joiner, Delta planer, Jet lathe, Sears drill press, Jet 10" drum sander, HF dust collector, Jet air filter, Delta band saw, Dremel scroll saw, Delta oscillating spindle sander, HF 12" disk/6x48" belt sander, and Hitachi 8" sliding compound miter saw. All of 'em are 20+ years old. And while a router isn't exactly stationary, it is when it's mounted in a shop-built router cabinet. In there is a Bosch 3.25HP router.

    Box joints is correct! You win one free internets! Finish is Watco semi gloss clear lacquer.

    Woohoo! Free internet's!


    Box joints are my go to as well, great look for the time it takes to set up.

    Have you ever tried you hand at hand cut dovetails? Hard to get right but very rewarding in the end.

    If she doesn't already, she's going to love it, I'm sure. Job well done!
