This bandsaw box was made from spalted beech but not in the usual way you would think of for a bandsaw box. Instead of a drawer, this one had a lid with an integral hinge. It is finished with clear matte spray.
It is a gift for my wife so don’t tell her you saw it yet. It reminds me of a loaf of cinnamon bread!
The last shot is the box with an obelisk I made from the piece I cut out of the center-too nice to throw away!
This is the first time I attempted to make a hidden hinge in this manner and it worked slick so I posted a blog on the process: http://lumberjocks.com/Slovenian/blog/26921
It just feels so good to work on a piece of wood like this!!!!!!!!!!
I have one more block,too.
