Laura built this box today it is made with her scroll saw. The woods are Walnut/ Maple and African Cherry.
Why I end up sanding I’ll never know LOL. She cut all the pieces and I helped put it together so she could start
another project for our show this coming up weekend.
Thanks for stopping by
Laura and Dennis

Very cool box. Like a bandsaw box but much more intricate. Gluing all those pieces looks very tedious. Could you sand this with a sanding mop after it was all assembled?
