This one might be a little cheesy :) The base is hickory and when I had it rough cut my Grandpa was there and said, “it’s a duck!” Hm, wasn’t supposed to be a duck and it took me a while to see what he was seeing but yes – I suppose the “tree” looks a bit like a duck’s head. Ok, went with it. The base/tree/duck is hickory and the little drawers are walnut, as are the handles. As I was sanding the base using drum sanders on the drill press the darn thing fell off and cracked the upper part. Not a bad crack and I used sawdust and glue to seal it back up. Bummer. I really do like the way the drawer handles turned out. I used a really dark and figured part of some scrap walnut. In the second to last picture you can see a little knot that popped out which I filled with clear epoxy which worked pretty well. My Grandpa really got a kick out of this project as you can see in the last picture. That makes me happy :) The purpose of this project was more or less to practice using an angle grinder – oh what fun!
Thanks for looking!

LOL – Thanks Tony :) I’ve got another ‘tree’ drawn up and am going to do my best to make it NOT look like a duck – HA! I still haven’t ordered any flocking either :)))

Thanks Larry! If I were a better woodworker I would have found a way to hide attaching the drawers securely but, I drilled through the tree and into the walnut, 2 dowels each. I think you can see them in the pictures. It’s definitely solid but would be better to not see those dowels.

Thanks all, for the compliments – these really are a hoot to draw up whatever you feel like and make it work, learn from mistakes. Great to have fun projects to develop skills you’ve wanted for such a long time :)

LOL – Thanks Tony :) I ve got another tree drawn up and am going to do my best to make it NOT look like a duck – HA! I still haven t ordered any flocking either :))) And I didn’t really start with intent of making it for Grandpa (really I was just making it to see if I could do it successfully) but when it cracked I told my mom (whom Grandpa lives with now) and she pretty much told me I was NOT scrapping it and that it was to be given to her so there you have the final destination!

That is really a unique look in band saw boxes. I really like it and may have to steal an idea or two from it. Great job, thanks. Mike
