September, 2010—This pretty much uses up the pink trumpet wood I had from the pruning I did last year in the back yard. The limbs are squared up on the table saw, and then glued up into a nice blank for the band saw. I used Titebond II wood glue.

I used the Golden Oak stain from Minwax, followed by some clear spray paint I have had for over ten years! This box is fairly normal in every way, except that I rounded the front. I was trying to make this look sort of like an eye. When I got it all finished, it reminded me of the monster in the old movie, War of the Worlds:

I was wondering when someone would curve the front or back or both…and then both ways as well.. left to right and top to bottom..
I like the use of pruning… and the grain/growth rings showing through..

Art, this is a really interesting box that you have created. And represent a great use of “firewood” for something other than burning. It took quite a bit of imagination and talent to be able to produce this from prunings.

Nice job.

Great looking box. I really like the shape design, very unique, true band saw skills. I also really like the circular ring grain and that you can see the whole rings on each piece. Very unique. Great work! Thanks for sharing.
