This is my first attempt at band saw boxes.
They are not my design.
I saw a picture of one, printed it out, glued it to my work
piece and started cutting.
They are about 4" tall and 8 1/2" long each.
The Sycamore came from a tree in my father's yard in
His wife insisted that he send me a log to work with.
Man, that log sat in my shop for a couple of years before it
dried out and I was able to think of something to do with
The pulls are made of Redheart and Black Walnut.
The finish is Tung oil: First coat thinned then subsequent
coats are straight from can.
I did learn a lot about Sycamore though and in hindsight,
I wish I had the whole tree now.
It was not until I finished the first box that I realized
such a thing as quarter-sawn Sycamore.
As I cut the first box and looked inside, I noticed the
grain was beautiful. After some research about
quarter-sawn wood, I was able quarter saw the log and orient
the quilted pattern to the front of the boxes on the second
and third box, which I think made a big difference.
