So – I have this big maple tree that needed trimming. I ended up with a good size branch that was pretty straight. And I’m a Lumberjock, right? Very simple band saw drawer. I left some of the bark coloring on the outside to give it some character. Made a fun little knob out of the same branch. Finished with natural stain, 50/50 laquer/poly – and flocked with wine color. I think this one has already been claimed! Thanks for taking a look.

I like it, the fact that you was able to use a branch to make it is really neat. Job well done.

Awesome. It reminds me of a cinnamon roll. Well done!

Ditto to the cinnamon roll!! Great work. I’ve been looking over your projects to learn how to make a bandsaw box. I just got myselft a 14” grizzly bandsaw for Christmas (mainly for making curved chair parts) but want to learn some other things to make with it.
