Isn’t that Padauk saw dust cool looking? What are the dimensions fo the box? It looks great! I always use Padauk as an accent or in small quantities, but I love working with it. I’ve never tried to make an entire box with it. Where did you get the 6/4?

Great Job!

As a lumberjock (yes, I ALWAYS have a chainsaw and a machete in the back of my van—don’t you??!!??) it was a one shot deal. Got a plank 6/4 10 feet long 11 ” wide for, are you ready: $20.00! Dimensions are APPROX. 17×10 x 8

Oh, and I know how you got the curves with the table saw! I saw it demonstrated in a video just last night.
