It’s just curing now, but my first non log slice band saw box is done! The plan changed fast on the fly as I was fighting the clock. The wood is maple from Rockler’s January sale, Maple is tough to get here in Texas except from the shops that import it, so it tends to be spendy here, but Rockler had a good price on it, and it gave me an excuse to work out the jointer and planer some… Dimensions are 6” tall x 5.75” wide x 3. 5/8” thick. The pul knob is just off the shelf hardware from an old cabinet project in my last place, so it has been sitting around in my garage for 10 + years….
I had some finishing trouble due to glue squeezeout that I just couldn’t seem to get rid of on the drawer, so I ended up flocking it, which I initially didn’t want to do. Now that I have done it, I am REALLY happy with the result as the contrast looks really nice to my eye…
I am really hoping she’ll like this, and appreciate the effort and thought that went into this….
