    Home for my Crossley

    I needed a nice piece to put my Crossely, a Christmas present from about three years ago. I finally decided on a simple side table sort of piece.

    Here are the pictures from that build. It had been a while since I had done anything but I think it came out nice.

    My visitor is a momma cardinal that comes and preens herself in my car mirror. She ignores me but gives me a look as if saying, "you just stay inside that garage." I almost never see the male.

    This was an easy fun project.

    The finished piece

    I had a difficult time with the finish. It is a dark mahogany with a satin polyurethane. The wood is birch from one of the big box stores.

    Now my Crossely has a home.

    And it fits right in. Nice work.

    And a fine looking home it is! You did a very nice job on it.

    BTW, I've never seen Birch at a big box store. All the ones around here only carry pine, oak and poplar. Obviously your table isn't pine or oak, but are you sure it's not poplar? Just curious...
