It has been a while since I have had time to post. Work has been crazy, and Christmas prep has been worse.
See that toybox? I figured I could get it done in about 10-15 hours. It took over 50.
It took awhile because it is built out of a sheet of oak veneer plywood and solid oak. Oak takes a while to work because it is so hard. But I had to use oak; this box is for my grandson. It had to be able to take abuse; after all, I raised his daddy, I know how rough he will be on his things.
But it had to be done for Christmas. And it was.
I still need to put another coat of polyurethane on the lid and sign and poly the bottom.
Then it will be done.
And I can start in the OTHER Christmas projects I have to finish.
