Excellent work as always Chet. I agree with Rick about something boat related. I really need to torture myself and try out this Wenge stuff. It looks beautiful!

As always the photo stand looks awesome :D.

It really not that bad.  You just need to be patient and not get rambunctious with it.  I have had days where after you start the milling process you hand can feel like you tried to choke a cactus... little tiny slivers all over.  But I don't think it is as bad as people would have you believe.

Another great project Chet! I love the way wenge looks but man does it splinter when you work with it :)

You shoulda went for a boat with that handle. 

Man, I wish I had thought of this Rick.  That would have been a real fun build,  I almost want to start over.

I kept trying to figure out why a boat, then it occurred to me! Fantastic combo of woods and great execution. Chet, do you have any of Doug Stowe’s books?

He’s a box nerd in a good way! His books and this site are what got me from making bird houses from pallet wood to the direction of some time in the distant future of becoming a woodworker.

You’re too kind my friend but thanks. It’s a great hobby and it keeps me off the streets and out of trouble.
