I got a couple of hours in the shop yesterday and made a good start on the G&G power strip. This is supposed to be a “quick and dirty” project, so I hope it doesn’t take on a life of it’s own. We’ll see. I made good progress, although there are still a couple of time consuming details left on the boxes themselves — shaping the ends of the finger joints after using a round over bit seems to take longer than you’d ever expect for example.
Anyway, here is where things stand right now.
I did a bit more, laying out the locations for the ebony pegs — twelve to each box — and starting to round over the ends before I called it quits. I won’t be able to work on these until next weekend again because I’m about to pack up and drive to San Diego for a week long class in Boulle Marquetry. On the way I hope to stop in LA to look at some original G&G stuff. I’d like to be on the road in an hour, so time for a cup of coffee and then I need to roll.
