I guess using wood that thick a car might be able to drive over one of those boxes and not crush whats inside...And might be big enough and heavy enough where no one would steal them in the purse so it looks like you are starting with a winner...

Guess I need to reply to size. I figured that if anyone sat on then since will be on the seat, the extra thickness will survive. This project may pick up next week as I got the product ready to go to DIL studio and my son will be here today . So I got the corner chips glued on the slide and sanded flush. Then started on the cutouts for the tops.

I assume these are made from oak to match the pew wood once finished?

Gerald if that would have been my project...... I would have gotten the band saw, the planner, the drum sander and a few other machines involved and by the time I had invested hundreds of bucks I would have ended up with a tissue box so thin the first sneeze would have destroyed it.......not counting a few days in the shop which would have kept me from getting that tan I have been planning on since winter...So you see I could have made 13 boxes exactly with the same amount of wood,, but I am not supposed to be using oak!!!

Yes the stain is jacobean on I think red oak. Got the tops cut and glued on today. There will be some router work to highlight th top and maybe a bead at the bottom.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
