This is a project that my ‘Padawan’ Wes wanted to make – he came to me asking if we could make a box.

Sure, simple I thought,  and in my mind I naively pictured a Twinings Tea box – (what you think I would be thinking red rose)?

You know square – rectilinear…










How wrong could I be? I should have known better  –  Wes was thinking something totally different…

All I could think of was Yoda – “Help you I can, yes.”









Those compound corners took a while since we had to construct a jig to cut on the band saw.

The box is made of Mahogany, Cherry and Maple.
