A really cool box William. I like it.

As far as strings go you might consider getting some old used guitar strings to keep around the shop for whatever may come up in the future. I keep some for use as fencing for my wood art pictures.

William here in Texas I finally learned the difference between a fiddle and a violin. It’s a violin when you want to sell one and a fiddle when buy one.

Are you going to make a bow?

I am glad you included the past picture. All along I though it was a full size violin box! Nicely done, William!

Thank you all.
I wasn’t able to stand too much in the shop today. I did partually disassemble my band saw though. I want to see if I can get it accurate enough with what I have around the shop so I can easily work on some more small boxes. This turned out to be a very pleasurable project for one of those “bad” days.

Thanks again folks.
If anyone likes this project enough to make one yourself, Scrollsaw Woodworking & Crafts is a great magazine. I gave up on subscriptions long ago, but I check religiously every time I go to Home Depot for this magazine and Creative Woodworking & Crafts. Even when the issues provide me with nothing to do at the immediate time, they are good reading anyway. I highly suggest anyone if you see a copy in the store to pick it up.
Also, our own fellow Lumberjockette, Sheila Landry is featured in almost ever issue of Creative Woodworking & Crafts.

Spunwood, I’m glad you noticed the grain. I had been saving this small chunk of wood for a while because I had noticed the pretty end grain on one side of it. I knew eventually I would find a project that showcased that grain pattern. While I don’t come across it often, I love interesting grain patterns.
