This is my first attempt at one of these and have been amazed at the different versions of the project.This is a very interesting project that uses many different methods using either bandsaw or scroll saw to read end result I decided to use walnut and Purple Heart for my ribbon cuts and placed final ribbons on a Curley maple box.
When I first got into woodworking 3 years ago, my first project was a pine bookshelf that I assembled using dowels, but I didn't know what I was doing, so over the next 2 years it started to lean and sag. Last fall, I decided to build a replacement out of cherry, so I was looking online for an idea that I liked. I found a sketch with no dimensions or details of any kind, but I liked the way it looked. I had to scale it to the corner I wanted to put it in, as there's a doorway on one wall and a picture window on the other. I don't have a dado blade, so all of the dadoes and rabetts were cut one saw kerf at a time, but I think the final product turned out well
