Posted April 2023 Featured Piece "Ghost Dancers Cabinet" by Bob McKee

Perhaps this cabinet by Bob McKee should be featured in October for Halloween.  It certainly would qualify both for craftmanship and mystique.

Reading Bob's account of making his cabinet is thoughtful and engaging.  I don't remember Bob's other Featured Piece contributions being so witty, imaginative, personal, and light hearted.  There was no inclination of that, especially because of the alarming figures seen in the wood.  It's a delightful read.

Also, noteworthy from the article is that Bob easily takes on woodworking challenges.  Working with oily Cocobolo needed preparation before gluing.  Veneering and installing Blum self-closing hinges were new to him.  Even working without a detailed plan was novel.  But not every new experience is thought to be repeated.  Read Ghost Dancers Cabinet for more.
