Toy Challenge presentors, Andy Tofuri, Bill Harris, and Norm Nichols.  Toy Challenge this month was puzzles.

Norm Nichols - My scrap pile overflowth!  To eliminate some I decided to do a bandsaw box.  Pieces of like thickness were laminated together, sanded flat, stacked, and glued in layers. Two coats lacquer topped with two coats hard wax. Drawers lined with Flockit.

The back is shiplapped walnut slats, and has a French cleat for hanging. The door closes with a ball catch. The interior is finished with shellac, and the exterior with Osmo Polyx-oil.

 Dan Schmoker - Four bowls, one of maple and three of walnut.  


Dave VanDewerker - I made a few heart shaped boxes from a Steve Goode pattern. The bodies are about 1-1/2 maple and the top and bottom are 1/4 white oak. The white oak are from a winery, we think they were used in a wine press.

I made a few mirrors using a beveled edge ~4-3/4 diameter mirror, they are ~11 + long. I used maple, walnut and some kind of African reddish wood.

Mesquite bowls, the large bowl is ~8 the smaller bowls are ~3-1/2, all are ~2 deep. The two lighter bowls are finished with a semi-gloss lacquer and the darker one gloss lacquer.
