« Part 2: wavy wood build in small scale Part 3 of tutorial series Part 4: framing tips for shop and house wall builds »

for this box here

for dark woods
tape the edge
to see the pencil line

bandsaw on one side
then parallel that on the other
(just one side for the bottom)

router a rabbet
on the inside edges
(i used a 1/4” set back bit)

top and bottom
ready for the sides

the sides in place
and a rabbet to glue to

the ends were rabbeted into the front and back
and their tops beveled to match
the sides first cut shorter
and the rabbet cut down
so it flows with the front and back curve
for a design overhang there

that’s about it
any questions just ask

thank you all

the hip bone is connected to the elbow somehow

we just have to figure out how
to get it thru our heads

mistakes do allot of that
and perseverance

Again you made it look a LOT easier than it really is (at least for amateurs like me). I think you and Martyn have the same ‘out there’ design gene.

ah .... the good old days

when getting out of the genes
meant something

getting out the eyeglasses
to see whats going on
