This was an old chunk of wood that was laying around the shop—hiding—and this morning I decided it was a band saw box. Wished I had taken a “before” pic ‘cause this thing was rough looking! Have no idea what kind of wood it is but it worked real good. Box measures 10”L x 5”W x 3”H and is finished with 3 coats of Danish oil. Thanks for the looks and comments.

Great idea and a wonderful piece of timber. Well done.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

It’s unusual and a nice conversation piece.

Awesome. There’s no such thing as worthless scraps…not when there’s a woodworker around. A guy just has to wait until that fine piece of material tells him what it wants to be. Just a matter of “listening”. I like using rare earth magnets for holding the lids on unique boxes.
