Default Stack cutting

Here two identical (except for the type of wood) boxes were made by stack cutting walnut and poplar, then mixing the cut pieces up a bit. The elk images were cut on an angle so they would fit into each other without a gap due to the thickness of the blade.

Each of the 4 sides were cut on a scroll saw, with the light and dark woods stacked together. Each pair of sides was cut on both ends with that squiggly pattern, blade at 90 degrees. The walnut end cuts were combined with the poplar center piece; the poplar end cuts were combined with the walnut center piece. This resulted in two boxes instead of one. The original pattern that inspired this project (by Gary MacKay) only had one box, since the final end cuts were from small pieces and the original corners were discarded. Once the 4 sides were whole again, they were miter jointed together. Here's a close-up...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...

After. The two different woods (3 pieces) of a side were glued together, planed a bit, and then mitered on a table saw. If reversed, I would probably harm the miter edge -- scrolling takes a lot of movement!
