Valentines Day Project

Here is a project I made for my wife for Valentines day, this project was designed by Michael Tyler ( and hosted by Vectric (

Here is the link Project Tutorial

– I used Bubinga wood for the main project also known as African Rosewood, Essingang, Buvenga.
– 1/4″ dowels  from the local craft store.
– 3 feet from the local craft store.
– Krylon Metallic Brilliant Gold spray paint – for the dowels and feet
– Krylon Metallic Brilliant Red spray paint

The only finish I did was 2 coats of shellac on the Bubinga.

Total machine time was around 4 hours, 3 router bits were use.
1) 1/4″ end mill (roughing),
2) 1/8″ ball nose (finishing),
3) 1/4″ end mill (cut out)

    Very nice project, how difficult was the bubinga on your bit?

    • Mick says:

      Works easily with hand or power tools. Reduced cutting angle recommended for interlocked grain. Moderate to severe blunting of cutters. Pre-drilling required for nailing. Gluing can be difficult due to gum pockets. Stains easily and can be brought to an excellent finish.

    Nice project Mick. It looks really nice. I especially like the finished look (shellac?). I’m sure she will like it!
