This is a cherry box that I made for my cousin’s wedding. It’s the first time I made something with almost all hand tools. The only machining that was done was resawing it to close to final thickness.
I don’t actually know what the box will be used to hold, since it was not made with any particular purpose in mind. I saw a similar box online and thought the design was pretty cool. I made a little “swoop” in the open part because it was a little tight for a hand to reach in.
All the wood was felled and milled by my grandfather years ago so there is a significance to the wood for myself and my cousin. I finished it with danish oil.
Thanks for looking!
