Got ask to build this for a good friend and fellow rust hunter. He has a little Ford Ranger and the arm rest is too low for comfort. he wanted a simple box to raise it 2" and then his wife is going to cover it with padding. I always like the simple things, allows me to try new stuff, if I screw up, it gets covered anyways.
A box with just one end is hard to do with dovetails. Really had to set the jig up close to perfect, because the when you flip it it is really for the other end of the box. I also tried to run the grain around the project, in a wrap effect. Then I wanted to see how well my bandsaw was set up, so I broke out the French curves and rounded the front corners. Really happy how the blade tracked in 5 1/2" thick cut. I inlaid a piece of walnut around three sides as well.
