As you can see, I was bitten by the bandsaw box bug. This one has been the most fun so far (less filing and sanding). Inspired by my granddaughter’s love of all things yellow that live in a pineapple under the sea, I fashioned this “possibles” box out of soft maple and painted with the help of my bride. The drawer pulls utilized some of Bob’s clothing and anatomical features, but the arms were cannibalized from a Mr. Potato Head. I think that I will take a sabbatical from bandsaw boxes while I regain some sanity.

Greg, That one is pretty cool. You did a great depiction of him. I am fortunate that my daughter is not yet a fan.
