Hello and welcome to another day. The first and only project we will be discussing today is exhibit A: Nina’s pie box. It is a peculiar venture to craft a box solely for the purpose of pie transportation. But, lo, that is what we see here before us today. This box was crafted by the hands of Josh. He is the artist formerly known as Joshua but has decided to change his name due to personal interests.
As you can see, the artist chose to use beetle-kill pine as his main choice of wood. White pine was also used for the sliding lid and for the fixed bottom. At the back of the box on the top, you will notice that a loose knot has given way and left a void. This was not the artist’s intent, but as all of you fellow woodworkers know, wood is a fickle thing. While cutting the grove for the lid, the knot exploded into a shower of loose knot particles, stunning the artist. A believer in chaos theory, Josh decided to just go with the proverbial flow and call the mishap “character.”
An 1/8” roundover was chosen for all edges so as to make pie transport comfortable for the pie courier. One thing also to take note of is the usage of a magnet so said lid stays put.
The artist was not available for comment.
If you would like to leave a comment, compliment or even some words of wisdom, please do it here. The artist wishes to correspond only via email. This will of course not be his personal email.
