For those of you that followed my Blog These are the first two projects with my New Unisaw. I built the cross cut sled with 7/4 Mahogany and 1/2” Birch ply. I then used that to build my first box. I believe the wood is Walnut and the top was a piece of the pallet that my Unisaw came on… you can see the holes on top where the nails were, thought it was fitting. Thanks for looking.

Nice (and appropriate) box. I followed your whole trading journey and remain in awe of your ‘horse trading’ skills.

Nice! I havent followed your blog… But now I want to go check it out.
And I think it’s great you used wood from the pallet your saw came on. Awesome.
