January, 2018 – A friend asked for a bandsaw box that looks like an apple. So here is my rendition. This started as a glue-up of several woods. The front is maple. A little green paint on the leaf. The inside of the drawer is flocked. Dowels are used for joinery. The finish is multiple coats of water-based poly, brushed on. Thanks for looking.

Apple is such a pretty wood, very under-used. Nice job, Art
