Default Thanks for the Advice - here's my 1st project

Thanks to all of you who patiently gave me such good advice as I was learning to use my router to raise panels and cut profiles. Here are some pics of my first ever woodworking project.

Just don't look too close, there are many newbie mistakes in it.

Vaughn,

Even after many projects, I have not yet achieved anything as nice as yours. You learn well and you learn fast. I can't wait to see your next one if the first one came out that good.

That Vaugn is one very successful project. I doubt that any of us could make anything that didn't have "faults", but we tend to be our own worst critics. As we become more experienced we tend to gradually modify the way we do things and this forum is one very good place to learn different techniques.

Excellent job! I really like the material offsets inside the chest. Is it all cedars? I can't
tell if the 2 light bands are white pine or cedar. The big band looks purple on my monitor.

The "red" material is 1/4 inch aromatic cedar, including the horizontal band around the rim. I think it looks a different color because the grain is running a different direction and reflects a different spectrum of light.

The light bands are white pine, same material as the outer portion of the chest. It's just unstained because otherwise the vapors from the cedar resin would turn the solvents in the stain and poly to mush, or so I am told.
