Poplar Splenda Box

April, 2014—I’ve made these before and they are fun to do. The splines, lid, and handle are made from assorted hardwoods. No stain. Just water-based poly, brushed on. These turn out to be interesting conversation pieces on the kitchen or dining room table.

Well done.. IMO poplar is a beautiful wood finished natural as you did here

A great and simple project. You got me thinking about making one for my Red Rose tea bags.

Very nice job, Art.

I like the radiused sides. Belt sander, bandsaw, ???

The sides were done on the band saw. Put the box on its side, then cut the radius on the left and right. Then tape the cut-off parts back on and turn the piece 90-degrees to cut the other two sides. That completes the cuts.
