This is a jewelry box I make of reclaimed wood and aluminum. This one is crafted with salvaged pine door jambs over 100 years old and the aluminum is from a junk yard. I distress the aluminum and hand-rivet the legs before stain is added for patina. It is just over 5" tall with a footprint of 6.5" x 8.5" and is lined with leather. It has at least 25 parts which could be shaped or cut with a Shopbot and the product would be greatly improved with accuracy and efficiency.
Currently the process requires labor intensive cuts with a scroll saw, tablesaw, bandsaw, edge sander and various handtools. I've been a woodworker for over 20 years and have researched a variety of options to create this box in larger numbers. The ShopBot would be a great asset in my efforts for this and other products I create.
