Scrap Pieces Box

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Scrap Pieces BoxWith my wild cherry gall largely gone (will restock in mid-August) and much of my wood gone, I decided to make a box from scrap pieces I had in my little cut-off pieces box.I played around with some stains with this one. I glued the walls together first, and then took them to the miter saw, which was a bit unruly. Lining up and gluing the walls was no easy feat, and the whole thing is a little cock-eyed (but maybe that adds to its appeal?)Once I got it more or less “straight,” I decided on some left over pieces of poplar for the bottom. I alternated the stain for a little more character.I decided on a picture frame lid of sorts, which again was reluctant to give me nice, tight miters, but I did my best.I still had some twisty wood left and decided to use that for another handle, which I think turned out well.The whole thing is finished in the last of my spray-on, water-based poly (I will be buying more of that!)I know it won't be everybody's cup of tea, but I wasn't setting out to make tea.Time to put this on the Lumberjock's water and see how it fails… sails, I mean sails!
