« Part 15: And now the offcuts... Part 16 of Wood Gloat series Part 17: Woods new to me... »

I have recently posted the endgrain glue up and how I made the box…
Here it is with one coat of wipe on poly applied..

There has been movement in the workshop … I have attached the hinge.. used a slot cutter on the router table to mortise the rebate for the hinge… and added a bar and ball chain..

Add a little green felt to a piece of 3 mm ply wood and hey presto a really cool base for the box..
And of course… it would not be complete without just one more teaser…

Stay tuned…

Your box turned out beautiful Larry with that end grain pattern on the lid. I really like the other box too. That stripe on the lid seems to coordinate with with the rest of the box.

Your salvo left me lying on the ground bleeding…...will I recover?

Just one shot at a time, please… have left my senses saturated, and my ego deflated.

Seriously, those are really cool boxes…...........

Yeah, let’s hear it from South Africa too :-)) I can’t get over that end grain. Is that all natural or did you rout teh patterns in it?

Thats really pretty and what an idea, might have to try something like that, but on a smaller scale. I have just the piece of wood too. Now just have to find it and check it out again.
Might just have to watch these blogs of your from now on.
