Just some fun projects thats been shelved for a while.
Black walnut hard maple, and birdseye maple lid.
Full 3D contoured pull handle
Base of walnut piece is 3D relief cut with ball end mill.
Hard maple mid section fully 3D cut to make to base piece.
Walnut on the top surface of the base. Fun project to work on 3d mated jointing.
Seems to work just peachy.
Interlocking lid design with no machined lip, but machined 3D contours on lid and base piece.
Black walnut base with fully 3D machine "feet" and lid matching corner notches.
Purple heart natural color, naturally finished with Satin lacquer.
Ebony base machined from cut off. I try not to scrap wood if possible. This is machined from the end grain so grain on base is vertical. Machined asymmetrical because the "tail" the base is made from hade an angle cut left on it. so I used that as a design feature.
Quartersawn sycamore lid, 3D finished on the interior to match the base component.
Narrow on one end, thicker on the other. Your eyes are not deceiving you.
This is for someones special little one. it will be a combination large box with removable tray, tooth fairy box compartment, and overall cool place to keep some stuff.
Starting off with a little black walnut. about 2 inches thick.
decking the surface flat
Pocket one cutting

tooth fairy box pocket machined into base. It has its own home
Curly Hard Maple again about 2 inches thick

Machined upper level of base
Very cool mineral streaking in the maple, It was placed here intentionally. You cant let that all go to dust

aromatic cedar that will be used in this piece as removable tray, and an engraved lid feature. Should keep this baby smelling great for years. This box BTW is 12X8 inches by almost 6 inches tall when completed.
Tray pocket cut. You are seeing this as it happens, This is in process now!
