Eleven Sided Box

author-gravatar turningsawdustintogroceries Sep 13, 2019

I'm try to something a little different. This box was made out of a small scrap of quartersawn white oak and some rosewood reclaimed from a chair made in the 1950s. Finished in Osmo.

Very nice. I am curious how you milled the scallops in the side panels. Did you run each piece diagonally through the table saw raising the blade a little each time?

Thank you! If you look at the picture with the 4 strips, you can kind of see the diagonal fence. Yes. I just ran the 4 pieces across maybe 3 or 4 passes until I had the shape I wanted. The notches (rabbets) for the rosewood parts were cut individually on the table saw in one pass.

Looks good! I like the dark color details a lot. If you like using the Omso, try using Saicos. Same outcome and pretty much the same ingredients but the dry times are shorter. You can get 2 coats in a day and be done.
