I’ll bet y’all think all I do everyday is make BS Boxes and you would be right. Being old and crippled up really doesn’t lend itself for skateboarding or bungee jumping so small wood projects is how I spend my day. I can get really lost in my “Maelstrom of Sawdust” and the shop and my greenhouse are the ways I pass my time. I like trying to discover new designs for the boxes and eat up a lot of wood that goes on to that big forest in the sky.
This is a box out of a piece of Cedar, which is actually West Texas Juniper, is a little different. I had to cut off some of the diameter to get it under my band saw but it’s fun. Drawer is a nice tight fit and slides real well.
The boxes will end up as Christmas presents for all the people I gave cutting boards to last year. They are obligated to take it because it is a gift. I also sell some at craft shows in Nov.
It is just something to occupy my mind and my hands and keeps me from becoming a couch potatoe.
