Nice little piece of work. People really seem to like the segmented style, with two or more “blooms”, or in this case, “shrooms” Nice!

Oh I really like this design and you did a great job with the round overs. What size is the box?

That band saw box is a jaw dropper.

I like this design a lot. And your execution was skillful. I have never done one where the kerfs were left open like this one.

How did you do the roundovers in the kerfs?

The roundovers on the kerfs were all done with aluminium oxide paper by hand with a couple of blisters on my thumb for good measure!

Have your say...
