Book Crate

Recommended Posts

Good luck ! I hope you do well on the test . 

I used to make crates from scrap, first for 8 tracks, then cassettes and then CDs. Walnut and cherry were favorites . A little glue, some brass escution pins and a quick coat of Watco made a bunch of gifts.

If i had some brass pins I'd have used them. I'll have to go get some. I can see this being useful it'd probably make a good gift.

Hope your exam went well, and doing something relaxing the night before an exam is the best thing you can do. If you don't know the material by then, you should be worried.

Ya done good, don't blow all your money on expensive wood, a stick of curly maple and some walnut. And you have an American engineer. We're proud to know you!

Be meticulous about blowing or vacuuming the walnut dust out of the maple pores before you finish. I have had it muddy up the maple a bit.

Congrats on your accomplishment !
