January, 2013—This box is a glue up of glue ups. Some spalted silver maple is glued up into boards that are then glued to each other, along with a bamboo board in the back.

The front face is curved, but not on the X-Y axis. I wanted to try something different and curve the face along the diagonal. Hopefully the photos will show this effect. If I were to do this one over I would make the drawer handles a little smaller. Otherwise I am very happy with the final result.

This is finished with tung oil, which really helps the grain “pop.” Thanks for looking!

Your latest bandsaw boxes give a whole new meaning to “recycling”.

Now that is one cool box Art! I like how you put it “glue up of glue ups”. It might just be me but it reminds me of a cat! LOL!!

That’s nice Art, but I still like those Splenda packet containers you made 2 1/2 years ago better.
I’m going to make some of those one of these days.
Thanks for sharing your ideas.
