Just a little box that was made from a board that was sitting around waiting to be in the firewood pile .
Looked too interesting so I played with it and found it to be interesting color .
Turned out OK I think and with a little more work it will make a present for someone .

That is so nice Kiefer, Really nice save!
How did you do the top pattern?
Is the box being held on by magnets?
Great Work, Great Save!

Robert The top is made from the offcuts in between the knots glued into a slab .
I cut the slabs into thin strips and turned them to show the end grain and glued it up with thin strips of leftovers .
Barely had enough scraps . That are ball bearings that I used to locate the lid on the box ,something I thought I try .

Kiefer, the corner splines that go into the legs is a wonderfully creative idea. How did you keep the spline cuts and leg cuts so well aligned? The design creates some possible sanding/finishing difficulties at the corners, but it is a wonderful effect. Did you put a finish on the box and legs and then cut and assemble the corners? Did you use tape to avoid chipping and to keep the squeeze-out from getting on the sides? If the legs extended to the sides of the top would the legs also locate the position of the top without the bearings? Wow, this design has so many possibilities. Thanks for sharing this with us. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Flat out grand slam box. The top AND the legs really make this baby stand proud. Beautiful work.

Very unique design. I have seen wood like that and don’t have a clue what it is but it is interesting.
