My second bandsaw box. I had this log from a maple tree we cut down last year and I thought, hmmm, could I?
It was a little tricky because it was cut at an angle, but I like that so I cut one end a little bit straighter so I could work with it, but I still had to hold it straight up on one point while I cut the circle out. I still have all my fingers so it can be done. There was a knot in the middle, so when I was looking for what I would use for a knob, I decided to use the knot from the piece I cut off earlier; so I cut around the knot on my scroll saw and glued it on. It looks really cool. I left it all natural, inside and out. Now you could put it out by your wood pile and put an extra key in it and nobody would know!
I’m hooked!

Great idea but most likely I would forget and burn it.

An awkward project to accomplish with the angled ends, but you obviously did a really good job on this one.
What size blade were you using . . . ¼”, ½” ?
Nicely done.

Wonderful and cleaver idea.
I hope someone doesn’t burn it that doesn’t know what it is.
All your work will go up in smoke. (:~)
