    This was a box for my daughter in law in walnut & quarter sawn sycamore.

    I've been wanting to try my hand at this type of box and am fairly satisfied with the result. Eastern cedar from a tree I took down in the yard about 5 years ago.

    Beautiful work, Steve! The sycamore is sweet and I really like the free form cedar. Is that routed out?

    I made a template out of tempered masonite and taped it to the piece with turners tape. Then used a mortise bit and a bowl/tray bit to hollow it out.

    I love the freeform box. The other one is awesome too. I like rounded and curved things.

    I was able to find it locally. A professor at Purdue cuts & cures from local timber. I don't know about your area but keep an eye out for clearing along power lines. A lot of times it is left laying in the right of way.
