Default Arrowhead Box

This box is a design by Diana Thompson from her book Wooden Boxes for the Scroll Saw. I modified the box with a deer fretwork pattern by White Tail Designs. The woods used are Cypress and Red Oak. This is the first time working with Cypress. It is soft and took some time getting a good finish. The box is 4 1/2" wide x 6 1/2" long x 2" high. Comments welcome.

Wow very nice! Im assuming the side walls are the cypress? I would be interested in hearing more about working with it.

Cypress is a beautiful wood and I have a bunch of it around here. I cant wait to get my hands on some from a saw mill I found near by.

Very nicely done Denny. Thanks for sharing this with us. Cypress is best for outdoors or wet environments as it is weather resistant.

Thank you Walter. Yes, the side is Cypress 1 3/9" thick. It was very easy to cut and sand. I applied Tung Oil Finish, let dry, sanded, applied spray polyurethane (3 coats) to get the hard finish.

Thanks, DW. You are right about the outdoor use, but I liked the grain, so I made this box. May make more of them.

I love it! I love the design, I have a pattern for a box like that but with a different center design. I love the Cypress. I just got some to work with this week. I love the grain as well. If I can work it well, I will be getting more. Did you cut the body of the box from a glue up or was it solid? What size blade did you use?
