    Cherry & Paduak Flag Cases

    Well, here they are after two years in the making. I know what you're thinking: "Wow, he's really slow. Did he use a small dull knife to make these?"

    Yes, I'm slow. I'm old and I've taken to measuring two if not three times before making a cut. Made too many cuts trying to make a board longer, so I am getting smarter in my senility.

    I made these for myself and my brother. I'm going to keep the cherry and I'll send my brother the Paduak case. The cherry came from my property. I had a sawyer come in and SWMBO & I stacked and stickered it to dry over about a year & a half, so it has special meaning for me. And I think it's pretty wood with some nice figure.

    I still need to get them to the glass company. They will cut some no glare glass and I'll ship my brothers' to Tigard, OR.

    They have 3 coats of hand rubbed tung oil and 4 coats of hand rubbed paste wax. I may give them another rubdown with paste wax after I get them back from the glazier.

    Those are really nice! You are correct that cherry is mighty pretty. Beautiful grain. The Padauk is certainly nothing to sneeze at either. Well done.

    No, not all of SoCal is Los Angeles!
    Looking good Karl. Padouk darkens nicely with time and that cherry will as well. Nicely done.

    Both look great Karl.
