Band-saw Box

For my third project of the semester (Intro to Design), we had to create a band-saw box designed to hold an item that had significance to us.

I chose a canning funnel, more because of its symbolic meaning to me, than other types of value. It has meaning to me, because I used to try hard not to fit into traditional gender roles. Over the years however, I realized that the stereotypes of enjoying cooking, care-giving and taking care of a home actually really fit me.

I guess there is a more complex layer to this project, because I was using woodworking tools, which is traditionally a male-dominated pastime. I really enjoyed making it though, and I was really satisfied with how it turned out!
