Been doing a lot of little projects in the shop lately.  Now is time to catch up.  Here is a mix of small projects, added, thrown in, extra...Lagniappe (Mark Twain had some words to say about this word).

Had a 7/8" thick lamination of Bubinga, Maple & Wenge left over from Box Swap 2023.  Built a copy of the box that was sent to Eric, not as good since on sanding day was not feeling it and am regretting it now.

Needed a stand for the alarm clock for the guest bedroom, had some small pieces and voila, a clock stand now is created.  Maple & Walnut.  DW kept putting the clock on top of the two decorative boxes, so action was taken to save them from scratches.

Wife went to the Madaras Gallery to take advantage of a print sale.  Cost was $35 matted, cost of frame similar.  Walnut.

Had same Chinese Elm left over from the coaster build.  Went to the shop scroll saw queen and asked her for a pattern.  Made a mistake so one whale is smaller than the other.  1 coat of wipe on poly, I did not go overboard with the finish.

Pottz,

Yeah, I wanna build something bigger.  Been thinking of and entry table or bedside tables for the guest bedroom.

I am finishing a large 90 degree sled for the AZ shop.  Finished dialing it in today.  Need to put a block where the blade comes out.  Came out super accurate.  More on that when I finally get the finishing touches on it.

Whales go to the two youngest G-kids.

Pottz,

The Swap Box is going back to Washington state with us May 11.  Much bigger house and more places to display it.  I do love it, think I won the prize although there were a ton of great boxes.  Took it to the AZ shop one day kind of hiding it behind my shop bag back in the corner and out of sight.

The guys that I hang with in the shop all found it and were amazed.

dude you hit the jack pot with a shipwright box. jealous, but i sure do love the one ive got too. actually even more because i wanted one i could actually use rather than just admire. it was probably the best swap ever as to high quality projects !

We could do another box swap, but a box ready to assemble.  Sure would be cheaper to ship.

Very fruitful time spent in the shop by the looks of it. Nice work Dave.
Something I need to accomplish. I have a similar collection of "leftovers" that are collecting dust. Good show of potential uses!
