I’m trying to stock up for upcoming fall craft shows and couldn’t resist showing a couple that struck my fancy.

The first picture is 3 band saw boxes, far left is a combination of aromatic cedar and walnut with 5 boards laminated together to make the front. The body is cedar, plywood and walnut.
The second box is a butternut front with lamination of plywood and walnut to make up the body.
The 3rd box is bkp front and bkp and walnut laminated to make up the body.
All three boxes were drilled in the back panel with a forstner bit to allow finger tip opening. I didn’t want to disturb the frontal grain pattern effect.
As well, the cut-outs from the drawer and the top cavities were converted into trays.

Next is my version of the “Valet” It is bkp and cedar with a single drawer w/cedar pull and 2 cavities on top.

Next is the whole reason for this posting – A RingMaster Bowl, it is aromatic cedar and yellow pine. The grain pattern of the yellow pine is difficult to predict but I already knew it would appear to be stacked lamination but it isn’t.

All of the pieces were finished with 5 and 6 coats of water base polyeurethane.

Almost forgot – the 3 drawer pieces are 1 cut boxes

Thanks for looking and please don’t hesitate to let me know how dumb I am for spending hours on hours sanding by hand.

Dick you have done some excellent work here. I am anxious to get back in the shop, but way too HOT down here.

Thanks Bill, It was 92 here today, don’t even want to know what it was in the shop but I’d work a little and jump on the motrocycle and dry off, go back in work some more and repeat.

Someone stop this guy. He got his motor running and just can,t stop. Dick that is some fantastic work. I really like the use of the innards to make the trays and stuff. Good job.

All very nice, great work. These should do well at the craft fair. As for the sanding, think of it as therapy.

I can see you are having lots of fun in that hot shop. Great work on the BS boxes and the RM bowl. Dick, did build a segment cutting sled for use on the RM? I have not found the time to make one as yet.
