Here’s one I have had under wraps for about 3 weeks. Of course, the wood is Aromatic Red Cedar and is 3 pieces of 8/4 laminated together to get the thickness. Box is 12” tall, 7” wide and 6” deep.
This was an experiment. I had seen a box similar to this one some place online, made a rough drawing and then for a week, I tried to figure how to make all those straight cuts. Table saw was the answer. Some ripping with the fence and some cross-cut with the sled. The whole thing was cut out on the table saw except for the small radiuses on the box corner. It was slow as it was being designed as it was being made. Still made like a band saw box, the back and one side were cut off, drawers made and then glued back on. Notice the grain pattern down the front, cut out of just one piece. Does this make it a table saw box? Drawer pulls are my usual deer antlers and finish is the lazy man’s favorite….rattle-can poly.
Kathy has already claimed it for her own jewelry box. So no problem, I’m gonna try another in BKP if I can ever get some in. It ought to be even prettier.
Now I am out of ideas, wood and inspiration for a while. Maybe I can catch up on some of the afternoon naps I missed.
