Tiger Tiger burning bright
In the forests of the night
William Blake 1757-1827
About 5 months ago, although it seems far away and long ago, I played around with some bandsaw patterns and blogged the results, here
I seem to remember making some vague promise to make boxes out of them. Finally here they are.
These two pencil boxes are of Ebony and English Yew (there are others I have subsequently found) and Birch ply. The corners are finger jointed and the sliding tops are dovetailed. They measure 185 x 56 x 45mm. The sides are 6mm thick, the tops 5mm. They have a finish of wax over sanding sealer.
