Being that next Monday is St. Patrick’s Day, I made this Box for my Little Irish Lassie.

It’s made out of Silver Maple, a tree we had removed from our backyard,

because it was getting to large, & we were afraid it would crush our house someday.

As I mentioned once before, this is very expensive wood. It cost us about $750 to have the tree removed.

The dimensions of the box is 7 1/4” X 7 1/4” X 3 3/4”.

You can see the construction process in My Blog series.

So HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY, & The Top of the Morning to Yee!

Cajunpen (Bill) Reminded me to put a felt lining in the drawers, So I did it today.

Like I said in your blog, it’s a great box. I’m sure your little Lassie will love it.

Dick,

This is a wonderful box. And it is from homegrown wood at that. Very nicely done.

Thanks for the post.

Real nice box. I’d like to make a bandsaw box myself but my benchtop model limits the size.

I like it! But at $750.00 that is an expensive little box.
