I had a block of spalted mystery wood in my shop for several years waiting for the right project to come along. When I saw Michael Cullen’s bandsaw box technique that was published in Fine Woodworking issue # 250 I knew I had found the right project for this block of wood.

The box is trimmed with ebony.

I cut the box and assembled it about 4 years ago and its only just recently that I got around to putting a finish on it.

The box is about 8” x 6” x 3” tall.

That’s a great design. It is really eye catching. The edge banding on the base of the box is a really unique idea I might try to copy.

I like the odd shape and the black trim. The spalted wood is really spectacular too.

The gentle curve is an elegant improvement to the “box”, enhanced even more with the hint of ebony. Well made!
