All Dressed Up!

The “building” phase of a box is somewhat uneventful – cut a few rebates, level the cheeks, apply a bit of glue and nail things together, all the while praying that your initial saw cuts were square. To curtail that excitement for perhaps a while longer, I cut “boot-jacks” in the sides and shaped the front feet. Next up was attempting the little “skirt” on the front. First, I needed a 3/8″ x 1-1/8″ x 15″ stick of walnut. Not wanting to retrieve that stick from being flung across the yard while planing down a 3/4″ thick piece, I opted for resawing!

After quite a bit of sawing, drilling, and filing, my walnut “skirt” became a reality.

I think it adds a nice flair to the box, especially with the shape of the feet.

Well, I guess it’s time to see if the initial saw cuts were indeed square. Stay tuned!
