Ok, my daughter wants a Lois Keener bandsaw box made from dogwood. The tree we had in the yard was full of holes created by wood borers. So, that all landed in the landfill. But, a neighbor had a 40 year old dogwood that the wood bores tried to make home. When he cut it down, I asked for the trunk. This is the last piece of it that I had. Yea, it doesn't look like much, but let's give it a try. This does not look promising. I'll check one end. Still not looking good and the test cut indicates that this wood is very soft.
This is in response to Gene volunteering sharing information about these beautiful boxes. I hope those of you who have tried them, can post some information of tips and cautions. Also, I hope that those who don't have the experience can and will post questions regarding them. Here is a link to the book with the patterns in the back. She does make the request to not make them for sale. https://www.amazon.com/Building-Beautiful-Bandsaw-Ventura-2000-12-02/dp/B01K9139SE/ref=sr_1_1?crid=9W51DP6E3O6N&dchild=1&keywords=lois+keener+ventura&qid=1589760262&sprefix=Lois+Keener%
