    Nice work. Looks great. I'm going to have to try some one day. I cut some old limb wood off my oak tree a a couple of years back and sealed the ends. It should be fully dry by now.

    If your only tool is a hammer, you tend to treat all problems as if they were nails.

        Thanks Loring. Making them out of solid blocks can be limiting as you need to start with pretty large pieces. These are either hard to find and/or expensive. Much easier and more preferable is laminating blocks as your starting point. This has many benefits and lets you use up a variety of old scraps, especially for small boxes. If you have scraps of reasonable quality ply (flat with minimal voids) these can be incorporated for the interior sections and can add interest to the design. If you make it all from solid wood and from one piece you can zig-zag the glue up and have matching grain patterns on the ends.

        The basic construction is pretty straightforward although there is a lot of sanding of awkward shapes and curves. You will find you need every sanding tool and trick in your arsenal ;-)

          Jon, could you explain how you made the cuts for the bottom left box, with 2 oval drawers. I can't see any cut lines where you cut through the sides like the other boxes.

            Beautiful Jon - great use of the ply in the various arrangements.

              Simply magic Carl, with my handy dandy laser box cutting tool, it goes around corners ;-)

              Seriously there are cut lines where I went in one side for the top draw and the other for the lower. They were then glued back together and as this is done before any shaping or sanding they do get hidden prety well. They are still visible but you have to know to look for them and where. You can hide them in the grain on the front but its harder to do on the sides.
