Maple Ambrosia Band Saw Box

March, 2012—This is from one block of wood, from Woodcraft. The sticker said “Maple Ambrosia.” $12.99 for a 3×6x6-inch block. Nice wood to work with. Plenty of character.

On this box I curved the face, which you can see in the last photo. That last photo is a top view. To do this, cut the face off before cutting out the drawers. Since I drew my pattern on the face, I tape it back on after I cut it off. Once the drawers are cut out the temporarily replaced face may be discarded.

The knobs on this one are a Satin Wood. Tung oil finish brushed on and rubbed off.

Nice design Art. Pretty wood, I’ve made several boxes out of it. Keep’em coming.

Cool design and some really nice looking wood. I have picked up blocks of this type before from WoodCraft, need to keep my eye out for some of this.
