This didn’t really start out to be a project at all.
I made a new medium-sized crosscut sled for my table saw a couple of weeks ago. It also includes a reversible miter fence. So I was just fooling around with it, cutting various small pieces from scraps, when a pattern started to form in my head. Pretty soon I had a reasonable facsimile of a box lid glued up, and it was just a matter of making a box to go under it. There is no inlay on the top…. it is all solid pieces glued into a pattern. Woods used (all scrap) include oak, walnut, maple, padauk, and mystery wood for the removable tray’s bottom. Finish is BLO, buffed on my 3-wheel system.
And if anybody followed Rich Greer’s thread on mistakes, you may know that this box started out to be about an inch taller than the final version. :-)
