    I think this is flatwork - but, WHAT IS IT?

    My wife Sandy will be demonstrating at our next Guild meeting how to make something like this - and it is NOT just a lump of wood : A second image gives the answer, but you must find it... Thanks for looking!

    Everyone wins, as everyone is correct!!! Here is the rest of the story:




    In preparation for her presentation, Sandy has made several boxes, using different woods, and each in a slightly different stage of completion. I am certain that everyone will have a better idea how to make these boxes using a band saw.

    Thanks again for looking!

    No. But how about a full sized lathe? That's a whole 'nuther story, I won't digress.

    Very cool BS box. I can't really tell from the pic but with that wonderfaul natural edge I assume the drawer grip is kinda built in by mother nature.
