a wee box made for a wee baby
i used ceder as it was aromatic and light weight
the main moulding was done (pic 4 ) using a chop saw with depth stop and a health amount of stupidity for good measure…
took a day to make…(8 hours ish)
letters and dates i used a scalple which i sharpened even further….

The coved sides & the feet are nice details.

Thanks for sharing.

A very nice box it’s sure to become a family treasure. Great job on the lettering too.

it was intresting to do the curved sides….especialy with a chopsaw….its not the safest method….but you et good results if you only have limited tooling
