May 12th is the anniversary of my marriage to my wonderfull wifey.
Our house is filled with really nice things that I have made but the majority of them are not for sale quality, not sanded enough and finished, not finished, “proto types” you know. This year for our day I wanted to make something for her real nice, so I did
This is the second band saw box I have done. The first being done about 4 years ago out of a log/branch piece of red wood that I brought back from the grove my father and grandfathers ashes are spread. (It was nice but not that good)
finished dementions ar 5in long X 3.5 thick X 3.5 tall
Black walnut
black walnut

in the second picture you can make out some filler pieces I scabbed from the drop so that the reveal was consistent. one really doesn’t see that its there unless you are really looking at it or are told about it
in the third you can see all its parts
for the most part the grain lined up nicely
Well you can’t see the scabbed build up and the reveal looks fair enough, yeah Im happy with it, and now after today and posting it her, I’ve shown just about everyone so now she can have it. Its on her dresser with her other pretty things
any comments would be welcomed
Thanks Wooley
