Another step forward

Another step forward today. The panels for the front, back, and sides were sized and fit into place. So now you have a basic idea of what this thing is supposed to look like. I used 1/8″ birch plywood for the panels, and I used my hollow mortise chisel machine to cut the 3″ x 1/4″ slot for the money.

The next challenge is to apply the veneer. It is too cold in the shop for my glues to set, so after Purim guests leave, I’ll have to move the veneering operation into the house where I can get a steady temperature. I think the contrast of the birds eye maple veneer and the cherry will look great.

More to follow…
