December, 2010—This ornamental box could be used as an urn for a dog, cat, or other pet. Or this box could be used to store keepsakes. The top and sides are pine from old pallets. The dark trim on the top and bottom rims are walnut. The corner legs are poplar. I am not sure what the handle is made of. I found it in my junk box, and I painted it a hammered green. The handle is attached by a recessed wood screw.
I created a new jig for my table saw for the corners. The jig allows me to create a wide, vertical slot in the carcass corners, wide enough to inset the legs. The dado blade is used in the saw. The legs were cut out with the band saw. The finish is a gloss spray lacquer. Hope you like it.
Tools used: band saw, table saw, portable belt sander, stationary belt sander, drill press, router.
