Leci n'est pas une bandsaw

Some may consider this to be a bit ‘tongue in cheek’ , as well they should , I’m no stranger
to that sort of thing ; ) . It may be the result of boredom or not wanting to throw
those cutoffs in the waste bin . I was working on a large cabinet when WWW had its box
contest, so that gave me a reason to take a needed break . I decided to make the worst
designed box ( appearance only, still quite functional ) I could muster . I had a very wordy
and lengthy presentation about the Chinese inventing brass , Babylonian Plywood and
Jewelry , how oil presses became steel screws , etc. I accidentally deleted the whole
thing …..pictures and all …….so I opted for a shorter presentation . The funny thing
is that , try as I might, my box did not finish in last place !!
Notice the classic patina on the coffee can hinges .
They need to be strong to support the barn wood top ( which weighs about as much as a feather)

The brass hanger used a handle , was a well thought out choice . It’s a little question mark
beckoning one to look inside .

Screws cost money , ( this box is costless , not priceless ) so I had to make do .
When was the last time you saw an electricians screw in a fine art box ? Well you still haven’t .
Notice the fine weathering of the top . You can see ripples ; like waves breaking against a shoreline.


Have a great holiday week everyone !
