hello again I see the sun is still shinning after i have come out from the shelter of my shed. i was given a piece of yew that was not very big. and could not have been a very big in girth. but tried to make another box . i like to try to get a whole box out of one piece of wood. but not this time the bottom had to be birch to try and blend in with the sap wood. and the legs or stand had to be made from another piece of scrape yew i had laying about. yew can see that the stand has a different shade of orange/red. a bit risky making the tenon joints on the legs. so i had to made a table saw jig for this purpose. some thing else i like making is jigs that work so you get to keep all my fingers. and this was the first box made using my new jig that i posted last week. the box measures 240mm x 130mm x 130mm. once again finished with linseed oil and beeswax thanks for looking. must go and start my next project who knows i might make a box!!!!
