You’ll be cutting three materials for this project. Here are the Easel projects for each material:
I used an 1/8" upcut spiral bit for the 3/4" maple and 1/8" cherry and a 1/16" fishtail to cut the letter in 1/8" maple.
I sanded the two pieces of 3/4" maple with 80 and 120 grit paper until the fit was snug but easy to seperate.
I sanded the 1/8" cherry and maple with 120 grit paper to clean up the edges and faces.
I glued the 3/4" maple and 1/8" cherry circles together and let them dry overnight.
The next morning I glued the 1/8" maple letter to the top of the box.
I used a little pure tung oil to protect and finish the box.
