Bandsaw Box from Cutoffs of the Last One

Furnished content.

Bandsaw Box from Cutoffs of the Last OneIf you scroll a couple projects back you can see where this piece came from on that last bandsaw box. I knew when I cut that piece off it was big enough for another box so I saved it and finally got around to making it a couple months ago. Just now getting around to sharing it here.
Again, it's Myrtle wood, Purple Heart and Yellow Heart. I have a ton of this beautiful Myrtle wood and it has gorgeous color and lots of figure, spalting,etc. I always flock both inside the drawer(s) and the drawer cavity as I did here as well.
I decided to accent and emphasize the insert cut by not duplicating the curve on the other side and by highlighting the same curve in the drawer pull. Finished with Watco Danish Oil and called it done.
Any questions/comments are always welcome.
Thanks for taking a peek.

Wall crosses

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Wall crosses2 of my close friends just moved into new houses, so I wanted to make them a house warming gift. I also wanted to try out this new 3mm BB plywood in our laser engraver, so this seemed to be a perfect combination. The tops are engraved and cut on my laser, then I used a compass to trace an offset on the cross onto this piece of Walnut and cut it out on the bandsaw.After I realized how much that sucked to do (I was kind of on a time crunch), I came up with the thought of just an elipse. Once I finished cutting out the elipse, I thought it looked a little disproportionate, so I added the random routes along the border.For hanging purposes, I used a keyhole bit to route the slot in the back, then stamped it with the branding iron and sprayed a few coats of poly to add the shine.The last few pictures are of some shirts I printed today after school. My family and I are headed south for the week to take my 2 daughters (7 & 5 yes old) to Disney. Not only is it their first trip to Disney, its my wife and I's first time on a plane together. We're also going with my two parents, would hopefully all goes well. Wish me luck!Thanks for checking in, as always comments and feedback appreciated!
