My Mom will be celebrating her 80th birthday this September and I wanted to make her a box. The vision has changed several time – sometimes because of a creative idea and sometimes because of technical difficulties.
(Once again, the router has “won” and so I had to change my design to eliminate the need to use the router). Someday, Router.. some day!!!
Anyway, I decided that this box would also double as an entry in the joinery category since I have met my personal challenge of no longer using screws if I didn’t need to.
Everything is put together using the DowelMax (including the inclusion of the front pillar). The pillar represents my Mom who is the pillar of the family and if you can see it, the knot in the wood looks like an eye, presenting how she keeps her eye on everyone to make sure she is there when needed.
Wood: walnut (legs and bottom of box), pine (sides of box), aromatic cedar (front pillar)
Joinery: dowels (using DowelMax)
Finish: wipe-on Poly.
