This is a storage box I made for my sphere cutting jig ( http://lumberjocks.com/Slovenian/blog/66434) to keep all the parts in one place and to keep it from rusting and not getting banged around in one of my drawers. The shell is made from 1/2” maple plywood and the holders are made from various thickness maple plywood. All joints are lock-mitered together and then the curve was cut afterward. It is finished with Danish oil natural and clear Poly and waxed. The last shot is of the first two spheres I cut using the jig. The left one is mesquite and the right one is spalted beech wood ( a beech ball )
I almost had to scrap the box or find a higher band saw. I was not thinking when I did the calculation for overall size. It came out at 12 1/4 and my band saw is 12” high with the riser. So I looked at what would make my blade guide higher and I took off the guide rollers, that gained 1/8”. The guide holder was hitting the frame on top and would go no higher so I took it to the mill and removed 1/8” off the top and I had it made .
