« Part 1: A wee bit of a taste of this box! Part 2 of Shamrock shaped box! series no next part

I guess I’ve been poking along on this project long enough now.

Here are some more pictures of my progress for you.
Sawing the Fonts, & backs of the drawers.

I drilled holes at the drawer bottoms, because of the short sawing radius.

Gluing the drawer fronts, & backs.

Originally I was going to saw the stem in one piece, but it’s impossible to get in that small area for finishing.

I mortised, & tenoned the stem on.

I carved some small Shamrocks for drawer pulls.

This is the end product.

I just lined the drawers with felt today.

Look at some more pictures in My Projects Gallery.

I think it is a fabulous job…...pretty neat. What kind of finish is on it? I just tried to buy outdoor varnish in small pint size. Went to 5 different places the sixth had a can, but only 1 brand.

Thanks for the construction photos. The box came out fine. And just in time for St. Patty’s day. Good timing.
