This should be called “The Box of 1000 Mistakes”. It seems like I invented ways to drop pieces, measure from the wrong side, and cut crooked throughout this project. In the end, it didn’t turn out too hideous.
I’m really a fan of quartersawn Sycamore and Cherry, and think that they compliment each other very well. I have a few small pieces of both and will probably be making some more boxes out of them in the near future.
This was a hand tool only project. I don’t have enough power for tailed equipment, so it makes resawing a little more difficult. Small boards like this go quickly though. Since the last time I finished Sycamore, I’ve gotten a cabinet scraper and card scrapers. I feel like I have been missing out for years. Probably one of the best tool investments that I’ve made.
Let me know what you think.
