Another bandsaw box of very old reclaimed redwood and maple. Dimensions:base is 12 1/2×8 1/2”, overall height is 17”. Finished with 3 coats brushed on shellac followed by hours of rubbing/polishing with shellac pad. The back is some Doug Fir reclaimed from my dad’s barn. Some of you will remember when I made the “Archimedes Trammel” toys. When I needed an ellipse for this base, I modified the prototype to attach a pencil and the result was a perfect ellipse! That was fun and now that I can draw them, ellipses will be used more.
