I decided to take a break from turning and try something new. I ordered the book “Sculpted Band Saw Boxes: Design, Inspiration & Construction” and used a couple plans out of it. I built 2 of the “Stingray” boxes for starters, then built a “Fern” box. I saw a demo on making leaves and also decided to add a few to the Fern box for a little extra decoration. The woods on the fern box are Maple & Alder. I used Canarywood, Alder and Maple on the Stingray box. I flocked all the drawers.

The leaves were made out of Ironwood & Walnut.

That is just beautiful. Sometime I will have to get some books and DVDs on how to make them.
