Very nice curved cut box, and those legs, like those little legs, can you show more of their attachment? Are they let into a mortise?? Can’t tell with the provided pics.

Interesting box, thanks for posting it.

Thanks, the feet are inlaid into a notch I cut on each mitered end on a miter sled at the table saw.

I cut the shape for the feet a bit over size and sand them flush as well as a bit of shaping after they are glued in.

Save some of the saw dust and sanding dust in a baggie. I have not done this but it might be interesting to use as a filler in epoxy in some crack or something. I love the feet on your Box. Really cool. Wood working is messy if you are not using a dust collection system. And I mostly do not myself. I work outsiide as much as possible.

Dewayne

Really like the the style, I really need to visit my local exotic wood supplier for a few pieces to work with.

question on the rounding of the outsides, how are you accomplishing this it would have to be very precise to from piece to piece.

Thanks
