DiResta: Mini Log Chest

Recently, I created the quite large “Hollow Log Treasure Chest.” While I was working on this, I was envisioning the method to making a smaller version on the band saw. Here, you see me make the Mini Log Chest. I had to work within the limits of the band saw, with 6.25” cutting hight. I kept it simple on the outside to use a secret hiding spot. Thank you, and enjoy!
