My cuz is getting married to a great guy. Time for something special to celebrate them! Inspired by Jay Bates. My first box project. Walnut, bubinga, and basswood. The raised bubinga panels were made on the table saw vertically with a tenoning jig. Panels were cut sequential and then ‘wrapped around’ in the same order, creating a continuous flow of grain. Grain on the corner legs follows the outside angles, and not the inside 90. Did that using a tapper jig, then squaring the top end to the two inside cuts, then cutting to length while flat from the same inside cuts.

-- Red pencil, red marker, marking knife... doesn't mater, the wood will end up the same color.

Fine job. I like the tiered panels. Very creative to use a tenoning jig.
