Project Information

I had a piece of spalted maple that I was waiting for it to tell me what it wanted to turn it into. It finally told me that it wanted to be a bandsaw box (after I got my bandsaw). Since I was unable to make 90 degree turns with my 1/4" blade (I should have been using a 1/8" blade, but I hadn't gotten one yet), I ended up drilling holes to help make the 90 degree turns. The piece ended being a tipping hazard when loaded, so I added the "feet" at the end of the build. The feet, or course, are the "waste" from two of the drawers. The finish is Zinnser clear shellac. The pulls are yellowheart. The majority of the wood is maple. The drawers are lined with black felt. The dimensions are 22" x 11" x 4"

This was given as a Christmas present to my sister-in-law.
