I don’t usually post my projects – shy I guess but I thought I owed something back after asking all those questions. This is my first box made with my 10” bandsaw. The box is walnut and the center section was supposed to be oak and walnut layered but my drawing was off and it ended up too small leaving a lip exposed on the bottom. Instead I used another block of walnut I had. I considered putting an accent strip in the top but reconsidered thinking it would take away from the look. It is approx. 9” wide X 8” long X 4 ¾ high. It was also the first time I used barrel hinges. Had to make mock up to get correct placement. Good thing they were going into walnut as another wood may have cracked during the installation.
The canoes were made from some redwood more to see if I could make something with the post size pcs I had – 1 was hogged out in the center and the other completely bandsawed. The drop was used to make a puzzle at my granddaughter’s request. I was surprised how much the kids liked the canoes. Go figure.
