Made from Aromatic Cedar and Poplar. All pieces cut on the scroll saw. Orange oil was applied to the bare wood, and later 2 coats of polyurethane. This was my first attempt at making this type of box. Pattern by Steve Good.

To answer the question for ‘1958’ as to how the cedar is bent.. it is not bent, the cedar is three (3) pieces of 1” thick wood cut out on the scroll saw and glued together according to the plan. My 4” belt sander was instrumental in sanding all the curved pieces after they were glued together.

Thank you all for your nice comments. When building my projects, I often have my doubts as to whether they (projects) will turn out satisfactorily, but when I receive the positive comments on here from my fellow LJ’ers, it makes it all worth while. I’m so happy to have found this great woodworking community!

Poplar and cedar—what an interesting and attractive combo. You did some very meticulous work here. Very refined looking—especially in contrast to the “free form” band saw boxes that are so popular now. Thanks for sharing this one.
