Another couple of boxes made from rescued popular. The handle on the second one is made from polished petrified wood. It’s kinda neat being able to combine a little lapidary work with the wood.

Nice to see the blend of timbers which works, well done.

If you wish to better position the drawer there are two things you can do with your next similar design, (1) design the cabinet so that the drawer is held in place, with this design that is achieved by extending the length of the lower section and follow the shape of the drawer. The second thing you could do is use sleepers / runners on the underside of the drawer, that will better position the drawer in the cabinet.

I hope this helps. I look forward to seeing more of your work here,

Tony, thanks for the comments. I’m just getting started and can use all the help I can get. Looking at your boxes helped me to want to start playing with firewood rather than burning it. I had no background nor training that would help me to build furniture and the bandsaw boxes looked simple enough to do that even a retired engineer might be able to make them. I am also enjoying carving bowls. I like doing that rather than turning because that allows me to follow the grain and overall shape of the piece of wood I’m working with.

I just finished another box and will post it as soon as I have time to photograph it. I used a spacer for the drawer. The wood is nowhere as pretty as this box, but I am please with the fit and finish.

Again, thanks for all the help, both direct and indirect.
