It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted so I wanted to share the latest box that I built with the help of a good friend and great metal worker. We’ve been working together on a number of projects lately. This time though we made a “making of” video of the box and handle (link below).

The box is made out of Redwood which was salvaged from my parents deck and has Maple accents and features a hand forged metal handle.

Hope you all like the box and the video!

Wow nice! I see you set the TS blade at an angle to make the cope profile. I did that on a box a while back but I make the box then splines then do the coping. I may have to try coping the long board first like you did, that must make sanding much faster. Thanks for sharing and great vid too.

Thanks for the comments! Yes I did set the angle on the TS, I wanted to have a more oblique curve for the box. This was the first time that I had done this operation so I was a little nervous running the board across the blade like that but it was pretty easy and I really like how the profile of the box turned out. Thanks for checking out the video!

Nice job, good looking project. Cutting the copes on the table saw is fun and provides a great look.
