My little palm box copy is in the clamps with the glue drying. The lid is close to being ready and will be finished when the glue dries. I have a couple things to decide on before I finish. I would really like to chamfer most of the edges and stop some of them with a lambs tongue. I’m a little nervous about this, for one I’ve never done it and two the purpleheart seems very brittle. If anyone has a good technique I’d love to hear it.
I’m also a little nervous about the strenght of the sides of this box. They are only glued to end grain. I have been thinking about adding a few pegs through the sides into the front, back and bottom. I’m short on time so curious if people think it will be strong enough without them.
