Re: [MedievalSawdust] Feast box plans/ideas
- There are as many variations as there are people.
Think about what you will be carrying in the box,
storing in the box, do you want a box that doubles as
a stool, do you want a box that goes along with your
personna. Do you want separate compartments for your
breakable pieces? Drawers for your small items? How
will you carry it?
I'm presently trying to complete my second feast gear
box. The first turned out great, but I can barely
lift it empty, much less tote it around casually full
of my feast gear. It's made of elm, a particularly
dense wood. It goes to war with me.
The second 'feast box' is a panel chest of oak and
1/4" plywood for the panels, smaller than the elm box.
And I'm thinking it will still be too heavy for me to
carelessly pick up and haul to the hall at a moment's
notice. I'll end up with two really nice boxes, but
still using the basket I have presently for my feast
gear. Which is why I suggested the stool option.
Just some thoughts to consider in planning a feast

- Okay, Chris.
I just wanna re-inforce what Chris has said........what we
call 'Basswood' here, they call 'Limewood' in GB.
It's basically the same tree, just a different name, growing in a
What WE call Sycamore, They call 'Lace wood' (look at the pretty lacy
patterns on a face of wood from our Sycamore, and you'll understand
What THEY call 'Sycamore' We call Maple.
Quite frankly, 'Lime' or 'Bass' makes no logical sense on the first
one, since there seems no reason to call it either.
Folk here in the States make Basswood sound like a dirty word, if
they're a woodworker......as if it's not a 'real' wood (frankly, it's
the same way I speak of Balsa wood, that disgusting stuff used for
model airplanes,....but it works good for that....)
Basswood is Great stuff !!!
Yeah, it's softer than maple (heck, Most woods I carve with,
are 'softer than maple, even my beloved Black walnut and Cherry
wood....I don't care what the charts may say,......I flatly refuse to
Ever carve on another piece of Maple wood, if I can help it, for the
rest of my life,.......she says, as 4 pieces of maple await the
carver's knife downstairs,......sorry,......it can't be helped, it
was all I had to use for a special commission that would do what
needed doing,.....doesn't mean I'm going to enjoy it,.....in fact, if
it can't be done, I'm giving them their money back, rather than
endure the aggrivation of trying to do the job.......
