In this video I show you how to make a simple yet elegant lift lid box. These little boxes can be made with with different woods to give them their own character, and due to the simplicity they can be made in batches.. They make a great gift to give someone. The boxes in the videos are made from Spalted Pecan, White Oak, & Mahogany. Each Box was finished with 2 coats of Danish Oil to bring out the natural beauty and color of the woods.
Also in the video I talk about an upcoming project where I will be using a recipe of Iron Acetate to Ebonize wood. This recipe can be found on the Woodworkers Guild of America Website within the Article titled Ebonizing Wood. Here is a Link to that article.
