July, 2010—I call this a low-boy pyramid two-sugar box. “Low boy” because the sugar packets store horizontally. The pyramid shape comes from the table saw set at about a 22-degree angle. The angle is not critical. The wider the wood you are working with, the steeper the angle you can achieve. This box is made from old pallet hardwood. The handles are from old pull chains. One is painted white for regular sugar, and the other painted yellow for Splenda. Can’t see in the photos, but the box is on feet about a quarter inch thick.

Sweet box! Setting up for the compound miters must have been a challenge. What did you use for wood on these? Great job!

Great design. I like the tapered sides. All ways like to here of pallet wood getting a new life.

Keep it up.

Another great project Art.
That spline sets it off really nicely along with the tapered sides..
It’s getting harder to choose a favorite, your nice band saw boxes or these cool Splenda boxes.
keep’em coming.
I’m saving these for Christmas present ideas.

Thanks for sharing.
