The daughter of our pastor just got married last week and instead of the traditional toaster, my wife suggested she might like one of my boxes. So, here it is. It’s curly maple front & back with purpleheart and jatoba in the middle. The pulls are also purple heart.
I must confess my screw-up while making this. I had all the pieces cut out and was to the point of cutting the open section out for the drawers. Well, with the flowing shape, I got top & bottom flipped and ended up cutting the bottom’s out of the 2 drawers (and yes, I did say a few bad words). So, what to do, what to do…
I ended up flipping the whole box upside-down. I took it back to the bandsaw and rounded off the “former” bottom and flattened the former top. All-in-all, I think my recovery worked out pretty well.
