I had an idea for a box, and here it is. It’s a little scrap of curly maple that I like. I resawed the top off,just as in making a bandsaw box. I used a stacked dado set on the tablesaw in 2 passes, then raised it for 2 more passes, to remove most of the inside, and cleared out the rest with the bandsaw and handtools.
The sides and handle are mahogany, reborn after many years as a shelf and many more waiting for another shot. They are held on by dowel pins cut from a rod. I don’t know where the shape came from, but I like it.
This is the first project with my brand. I practiced on scraps, and of course, blew it when it counts.
5” wide x 3 and 1/2” deep x 2 and 1/4” tall. Shellac.
