Life Part Two

The adventures of Fay and Bob as they move beyond the 9 to 5 life

More “outside the box” creations

Leave a comment

We have been very busy making more creations and are very pleased with how these turned out.

This photo shows on the left a box we made earlier and the same box on the right once we had more practice.   These are part of a group I made called  my “baby boxes”.  They are about 4″ by 4″.  The one on the right is oak and mahogany and now has a cute little hand made mahogany pull handle like the one on the left.

This is another small box also oak and mahogany.

And this is my favorite small one.  I like the lines on this.

While I was making my little boxes Bob worked on two large ones.  This is about 9 inches long and is called biped.   It is mahogany with birch handles.

Our favorite one is mahogany with birch drawer fronts and mahogany handles.   It really turned out nice.


Bob cut out the two big ones and I cut out the little ones and I did most of the sanding and finishing on all of them and we both flocked the insides.   The finish is 3 coats of Watco natural oil followed by a spray coat of shellac followed by three – four thin coats of spray lacquer.

Hope you enjoyed our work.
