Thanks to Andy for his fantastic tutorial on how to make these boxes. Check it out here: http://lumberjocks.com/Argyllshire/blog/9415
I’ve always liked looking at the boxes people have put together and posted here. Finally decided to build one myself. It was a great excuse to buy an angle grinder anyway :) The curves are intended to convey the swaying of long branches in the wind.
The biggest challenge of the build was keeping the red powder created by sanding the paduak from turning the maple pink! Wait, no, it was installing the barrel hinges. I really like how many fewer steps are involved when using them but ruined many small screwdrivers trying to set the expanding pin and also got epoxy all over everything trying to glue them into place when they wouldn’t expand… maybe someone can point me to better quality ones than the 10mm woodcraft set.
Thanks for looking.
