I was excited to make use of my new sled. The bandsaw had not yet arrived. A five inch square box from 4/4 scrap in red oak and walnut.
The body and splines are red oak.
The top, bottom and tray are from walnut.
I resawed the walnut on the table saw for the tray. I find I do not like to resaw on the table saw.
The feet are formed from dados cut in bottom starting near the center and widening on each pass. I move the fence away from the blade and rotate the piece 90 degrees between each of four passes.
The hinges are mortised only into the case, surface mounted to the top. Since I mounted them with the barrel centered on the back, then I had to cut some small relief mortises to accommodate the hinge leaf while opening.
