I am going to dedicate this project to Stevemarin. In his recent project, he kind of challenged me to make a band saw type box that was smaller than his “World’s Smallest” box. (ha!) As a matter of fact, in honor of his ‘inspiration’ I am going to call this box “The Steve.”

Look closely in the second picture. Those are grains of RICE! Steve had his box next to a quarter, so I showed that mine is just a bit bigger than a dime. :) Here is the link to his project – Don’t let the name fool you!

The World's BIGGEST band Saw box

Like Steve’s, mine is made on the scroll saw. It is made from poplar and not as pretty as his, but hey – I was only challenged an hour ago! It has a fully functional drawer and a solid back. I think I will let my little bear from my Beary Tale use it as an underware dresser.

Thanks for the challenge, Steve! Maybe next time! :D

I have to say though that i had the help of my partner Scroll3r! We both had lots of fun!

Cheater. You used Canadian money.

But hey Sheila, that is cool.
You could do a whole 7 drawer lingerie chest for your bear.

Good job,
Steve

Yah, Steve! I didn’t think of that! Canadian money is worth more than US money these days! But don’t let the inflated Canadian dollar fool you – those are older coins! :)

Yes, my friend! My glory was very short lived! I was wondering how I was going to teach a scroll sawing class with cut fingers while I was cutting this box out! Wouldn’t that be special (and just like me to do something like that!)

You are quite amazing and as I said on your post, my little bear could probably store his dentures in the box you made!

Kudos to you! This was a fun challenge but I think you are the winner! (I bow to you, sir!)

Congratulations! :D

I will have to do it last, so if I lose a finger at least you guys will have most of the stuff learned! Bob (knotcurser) beat me already though! But being the queen was fun while it lasted! :)

Shelia,

It’s clear that your problem is that you are using a Canadian dime as a size referrence whereas Steve is using a U.S. dime. Apples and oranges, my dear, apples and oranges…

Opps! Just noticed that Steve (SPalm) beat me to it on the money question…

Enjoy!

Wow..that is cool! Plus is looks really smooth. It helps to use sandpaper with only 2 grains on it. I am humbled in your presence.
