Being that we’re a three generation Clemson family and we just won the Natty in football, I thought I would crank out a few boxes for Christmas presents for 2017.
I got some scraps together and went for this prototype to see how it would look. I used pieces of cherry, bubinga and padauk.
So this technique is the where you stack two contrasting woods, saw the same pattern and then swap the parts. Since the Tiger Paw logo, by default, has many jagged edges, it’s a cinch to scroll saw.
Here I had the idea of incorporating the National Championship logo into the box, but it gets kinda busy and messy so I bailed on that idea
