Finished this sewing box in elm.
Little rain, but nice electrical show yesterday, July 7.
I just made another Krenov-style maple drawing table.
Last week-end I took a walk to Vallaurette, high in the Vallée des Merveilles.
No snow yet, streams were not even frozen yet. It won’t last.
A butsudan is a shrine used in Buddhist culture. This one is made with the same elm wood that I used for a coopered box. Difficult to work because it is so hard, but it has a wonderful color and grain.
