One of the good & bad things of teaching wood is making “demo” projects. When you’re teaching a class you can’t really use a student’s project, so I end up with a ton of extra birdfeeders, coat racks, lamps, clocks, etc. This, however, was a new project I tried with my second level kids, and I enjoyed experimenting with different aspects of it.
This was my first miter box that I added feet to, first lid with integrated lift (borrowed idea from Greg the Cajun Box Sculptor) and I decided to have the dividers just rest in the cavity of the box so they could be changed around if desired. The tie-dyed bottom may not be what this box needs, but its just the amount of accent that this box deserves.
On a side (photographical) note. Although I normally adjust the White Balance, I couldn’t get the setting right for the first couple pictures. You can really notice the difference between the first 2 pictures, and I have another group of some cutting boards that have a much more noticeable difference. It’s just crazy what a little adjustment can do for (or against) you!
Anyone else have issues/problems/successes with white balance?
