After seeing all of Randy’s (Blackie’s) cool bandsaw boxes, I decided it was time to take the resaw blade off my saw and have some fun. I haven’t done these for several years so thought I’d start with “easy” wood. I had a really old redwood 2×12 deck joist with a lot of nail holes and surface rot and I had a tiny bit of birdseye maple from Jeff (JL7). I forgot how fun these are! Dimensions: 13”x 6 1/2”x 6”. Finished with brushed on shellac and wax. Redwood knobs cut with 5/8” plug cutter. I included so many pics trying to show how incredibly close together the growth rings are (pic 2,3). I learned some stuff about finishing very dry soft wood on this one.
