Had some inspiration late at night in the wood shop. I took some oak logs out of the firewood pile and starting designing and cutting. I made 3 different boxes out of the same log. No felt in the drawers yet. Not sure what I will do with them. I just like making stuff out of wood that is destined for the burn pile.

The wood is awesome! These band saw boxes are one of a kind.

Pete, I try to let them dry for a year before I touch them. I they are not dry they will continue to move after the box is finished; then the drawer never comes out.
