Birthday BoxPosted: June 19, 2012
For my dad’s birthday / father’s day I made him a box. Here’s it is completed.
The sides are walnut and the corner splines are maple. The top is cedar from a tree he took down on his property where my sister and I grew up.
Here’s a corner and top detail.
Here’s some shots of glue ups.
The paper shims are to keep the spacing of the top uniform.
This is the top panel, resawn and planed, before I cut it to size. I flipped it around for the box top, since in the picture it looks like a pretty angry something…
An older post about turning the tree into usable boards is here.
