My church is sponsoring an art show this November. I thought I would set-up a booth and show some of my wares. I have some pieces ready, those shown on my Items For Sale page. I also thought I should perhaps add a few pieces of treenware to the collection; salt-boxes, candle sconces, silverware trays, and other such things.
Wasting no time I grabbed an oak board, and started to layout lunettes on the front and sides of a small salt-box.
With no particular pattern in mind, I just started carving. This is what I ended up with…
After cutting the parts out of the board, I squared the ends, and formed rebates at the ends of the front and back pieces.
In a matter of minutes, I had another carcass to pin together. I’ll most likely have a pine bottom and lid for this little box.
