Hi

A two drawer bandsawn box, using Australian Red Cedar.

Inspired by a Federal era Heartback chair, as displayed in April 2011 edition of Fine WoodWorking magazine, No. 218 (rear cover page)

It was fun to make!

Beautiful design, I especially like the drawer within the drawer.

Gee that’s good. Nice wood too – it gives me an idea of what to look out for.

Great design and implementation. Is the front carved, or did you somehow use a router?

Hi

Thank you everyone for your kind words.

All hand carved and finished, the only machine used was the bandsaw.

The patience and planning needed to make this box are evident. Every time I looked at the pictures I could pick up another detail that was amazing. Taking an iconic form and transforming it into a box is way cool.

Steve.
