With a new baby it seems like all I have time for these days are these fun but simple bandsaw boxes that only take a couple hours in the shop to complete.
This one is made from a spalted maple turning blank. After cutting the pieces and doing the glueup I evened it up and shaped it with my belt sander. Then I rounded all the edges over with my palm router. After final sanding using my random orbital sander down to 220 I finished it in 3 coats of wiping varnish to give it some shine, buffing with 000 steel wool between coats.
The finishing of this box turned out better than any other I’ve done so far and I think I’m starting to get the hang of it- there is a nice even shine on the whole thing.
I finished the inside with felt, put some felt feet on the bottom along with my brand, and gave it to my wife. She loves it so the project was a success.
