    Picture Frames for the 4th

    I finished one of these in time to take it up to Antioch where we visit friends around the 4th. I made them a shedua box with a bookmatched ash top one year. This is from the same batch of shedua. Sized for 8 x 10 photos.

    Here's a couple I'll finish later that are for other folks; white oak and padouk. All have ebony plugs.

    I used a template to do the lifts.

    Say hello to the delta for me... We used to live in Antioch. Never went out on the Delta for the 4th though...

    Those look great, but I call shenanigans. You claim to have made the padauk frame, yet your shop shows none of the characteristic orange dust that is inevitable when working padauk.

    Very nice work, Liar Lips.

    Had to vaccum up all the orange stuff before I started finishing ;-). I have learned to keep things like white oak to heck and gone away when sanding ebony or padouk. that dust will get into every nook and cranny.

    I made a couple padauk boxes back when the only DC I had was a shop vac hooked to my tablesaw. Didn't do much good when I was cutting cove profiles in the sides of the boxes and spraying dust from here to Pacoima. And I had carpeted shop floors back then, as a bonus. I had orange dust everywhere for months after that.
