April, 2010—Just for fun I decided to make some small boxes out of some bushes I cut way back. The darker one is from a pink trumpet bush from the back yard, and the lighter one is from an unknown bush in the front yard. The darker one was made using traditional band saw box techniques. On the lighter one, I cut off the top and bottom with the band saw, and then drilled out the hole with a spade bit. Danish oil finish. Cute and quick.
