Had a nice piece of scrap from some old oak barn wood and loved the character of the wood so decided to try my hand at carving the box from a solid piece of wood. I started off by slicing off a piece from the top to use as the lid. Then I used a Dremel I have mounted on an old drill press to route out the box and then sanded it. I didn’t have anything to line the inside of the box.
Its just a simple small box but I thought that the character of the wood with the dark aged outer part and the lighter inner part of the wood made a nice simple contrast and the growth rings were nicely distinguished on it.
I would like to do some larger and deeper pieces that are carved out from a solid piece of wood but I want it to be a solid piece, not a band saw box. I also don’t want to chisel because I feel right now that I just have so much other stuff to learn and practice already – not to mention costs of the chisels and sharpening stones and such. Any suggestions?
