This is made from the “waste” that was left over from the cedar bowtie boxthat I posted in Feb. I gave it the “name” because it sorta looks like a spaceship thing-a-ma-jig. It’s basically a high-tech-redneck bandsaw box. I knew those scraps would become something one day. You can get a little bit of the scale of its size in the last pic. Finished with Howards wax. Thanks for the looks and comments.

Very original, does the Howards wax keep the cedar colors bright?

That is certainly one of your more unique pieces. Love it!

I love the form and think I have to make one of these. Those delicate legs are superb.
Did you hollow out the centre with multiple plunge cuts on the table saw?

vipond33————————— Hello and thanks for the comments on the “cedarstar”! It’s basicaly a bandsaw box. If you search my projects for “cedar bowtie box” you will see where I got the “body” for the cedarstar box…it’s base is the cut-off/waste from that project. Where I got the legs from—-I sliced them off the sides of the 2 pieces of bowtie waste to get them to be the exact same size in width. Then I took the bottom half of the base of the cedarstar box and I cut 1/4’’ slices off both side and then scooped out the middle and then glued the sides back on. All of this was done with the bandsaw. The hardest part of this was then gluing on the legs and getting them right. I could have done a lot more to it, to “dress” it up, but I was basically just goofing around one day and this is the by-product.
Hope this helps you some.

Much appreciated Jim. I could have answered my own question if I had looked back, it’s been a lazy day in more ways than one. I’m glad you had a good goofing around day though, we all profit.
