Nirvana Boxes

Some simple bandsaw type boxes that I was inspired to make after hearing Nirvana’s “Heart Shaped Box” on my way into work one day. Surprisingly, of the 7 [teenage male] students I asked, only 1 knew who I was talking about when I mentioned Nirvana. Yikes.

I Also tried out some peel’n’stick felt after hearing Randy rave about it. It worked out pretty good and I really like the variety of color options available.

I did have some trouble sanding around the knot on the lighter colored piece, but it was only meant to be a quick project so I’m not too upset about it. I’m actually more upset that teenagers don’t know enough about music history to recognize a group who revolutionized the Grunge movement. I blame Nickleback.

As always, thanks for looking, comments appreciated.
