Boxes

Ouch! This is what happens when you pinch your hand between the table saw and the saw blade guard... Note to self, use gloves and a block in future! Ouch! This is what happens when you pinch your hand between the table saw and the saw blade guard… Note to self, use gloves and a block in future! Nothing cut open, just bruised and a blood blister. (Time for my Arnica Salve!)[/caption] My goal, is to eventualy get good enough to sell my ‘stuff’ at the craft shows we go to and on our store (www.hilltop-arts.com). I don’t think I’m ‘there’ yet unless I’m selling it a very primitive piece. First I made a biscuit joined box to try out the biscuit joiner Michael bought a while back and I liked how easy it was to make the cuts. Then because I didn’t have enough scrap of that wood left, I turned the box into my sanding station.

Not sure what I’ll do with it yet, but its cute for old scrap wood. ┬áIts a great size for little things like stamps, pencils, pens and the like.
