I made this bandsaw box to be raffled as a fund-raiser at the annual homecoming reunion in my hometown in northwestern Pennsylvania. The flag pin marks the location. Inside is lined with the traditional school colors.
I was inspired to make this box after I saw pictures of friends wearing t-shirts with a heart marking the location and a caption, “this is where my story begins” People who grew up in small towns will understand the sentiment.
The lidded box is made of Cherry and maple, two trees growing in abundance in this part of Pennsylvania.
I have attached a couple of photos showing the glue up and the lid structure. I used the top slice of the core glued to the lid to keep the lid aligned.
