Aromatic Cedar

After countless hours in front of the computer, there’s nothing I find more relaxing than heading out to the woodshop, to design and build furniture, toys, and the occasional sculpture.

My latest project is a blanket box – solid cherry with cherry-veneer solid-core plywood, lined with aromatic cedar. It’s been fun to build a larger piece after a couple of years of mostly making toys. It’s also provided a chance to say thank you to some special friends for all their warmth and hospitality. Friends we met over the Internet.

The drawer pulls are jatoba. Graeme helped with the sanding.
