Moving a lot of lumber around so I could get the majority of the material out for JR’s bed. Lindsay spent some time in the shop working on some cloud bookshelves for the boys.

Tea Chests by Matt
This commission has been the most rewarding and challenging project that I have done to date. These two chests are built using splined miter construction, with a 4-way book-match on the case material. The tops and bottoms are walnut veneer over a Baltic birch plywood substrate, with the tops consisting of sequentially cut, 30+ year old walnut crotch veneers. The tops are then inlaid with ebony strips, banding the field inside the walnut frame. The casework and liners/grid are constructed out of locally sourced walnut and curly maple, respectively. Finally, @brussohardware stop hinges bring the case and lid together. I hate to see these leave, but I’m glad they are going to loving homes.

Menorah by Jason and Alex
My 9-yr old son, Alex, and I made this steel menorah. In the background of the picture where it’s lit are three other menorahs my sons and I have made over the past few years.
Leaning Ladder Shelf by Mark
Thought I’d submit a English oak leaning ladder shelf design of mine for your viewer projects. It’s quite simple and minimal but a lot of thought still went into the design with the profiled edges of the shelf matching the lean. I’m afraid I don’t have any other photo’s of the make but hoping it might inspire some of your viewers!
