I need a box to hold my darts to take with us to Arizona next week and I had these short blocks of spalted beech left over from cutting up a log to make my last obelisk. So I cut them to around 3/8” thick on the band saw and ran them through the jointer so they were all close in thickness. I bought a new lock miter bit and had to make a fixture to hold these small pieces safely on the router table. I’ll post that later.
I posted the final pictures and three shots of the building of it. I mitered all the sides and then the top to all the sides, glued it all together and then cut it apart using a 96” radius template for the two curves. I added a brass pin and bushing to keep it aligned when closed. The bottom dart tray comes out for storage of tips below.
It is finished with clear matte spray.
