Reclaimed Redwood, a gift from my sister, plus soft maple trim and Redwood burl purchased from Rare Woods & Veneers – Carlton McLendon, Inc.Pictures and comments during making of the splayed feet:
Objective: a bit of Mid Century modern look and enough room under the box to easily pick it up.Cut 1/2 inch square pieces:
Using a quarter round bit and stop blocks at the router table, I formed dowels in the center section of the square stock by rotating 90 degrees on each pass (safety first):
Cross cut at 25 degrees and 3/4” long:
Built a fixture for the drill press to hold pieces at compound angle 25 degrees and 45 degrees:
Drilled 1/2 inch holes into corner of would be mounting blocks, 3/16 inch thick, using a protective piece of scrap above and below to accomplish clean holes:
Cut the mounting blocks to size, rounded over the edges that would show and dry fitted to each box:
Tuned the fit on sanding board, glued them into the mounting blocks with CA glue:
Signed and tied up with a bow:
