I decided the neighbor lady needed a recipe box to keep her multitude of recipes in. And, to further my chances at more pies in the future. :wink:
Plus, she is next door to my workshop, so I know she hears my machinery and doesn't complain.
I found the graining particularly odd on this piece of wood and I think it came out very well. for poplar.

Very nice Roger. I don't know anything about maple but I do like the grain pattern in that piece of timber.

That should be worth an apple blueberry, cinnamon graham cracker crust pie without a doubt.

I put a light rubbing of Minwax Provincial stain and 3 coats of Minwax wiping poly. It seemed too easy, I hate finishing.

Such a rare project these days ... I was just thinking yesterday how recipe cards are disappearing from kitchens now equipped with iPad holders for the online cook. And we're the poorer for it ... reading Grandma's handwriting is one of the special things that can happen when you're using her recipe!

Good job Rodger, Did you do the box joints on the TS or Router? I like box joints. Your finish turned out great sure showcased the grain. A box to be proud of.

Good looking box, and Boston Cream Pie is one of my favorites!! I had a pretty good supply of old poplar that showed a lot of the same type of grain--couldn't understand why it was referred to as a secondary wood.

My wife of 11 years and 5 days is a pretty good cook. Just before we were married we moved her stuff from her apartment to the house and she mentioned "a few boxes of magazines in the basement". As i recall it was 16 or 17 "Bankers Boxes" of cooking magazines with recipes she wanted to keep. We'd already moved at least the equivalent of that in cookbooks. The collection has been thinned our some since--but building her a box for all her recipes would be a good sized addition to the house!!

But...i sure do eat well, no complaints there!!

Great job!!

I used the I-Box on the table saw. I seem to have better results there compared to using it on the router table.
