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.
