Hi gang
Hear’s part “B” of a commission I built for the same customer that I built a 1/4 sawn white oak table for.This customer has remodeled their kitchen in all 1/4 sawn white oak and wanted there table and register to match.
Even though this register is only 14” X 12” high it was a bit of a challenge getting it the correct size for some metal ducting it had to fit over that I only had photos of, getting the little bars spaced morticed properly took a little time too. Thanks for looking

Merry Christmas

Nicely done, Jim. I have wooden register covers in my house, and I think they’re a great touch in making house feel like mine.
