There is something about making boxes that just makes you want to make more. I’ve caught the fever. These boxes are the result of going out to the shop and wanting to make something, but not having any specific plans in mind. Looking around I saw that I had a fair collection of lumber that was taking up space and wanted to become something. So I thought I’d oblige.
The first picture is the latest collection. Going clockwise from the top left …
1. Butternut with a spalted Maple panel lid. 10×13 x 2
2. Birch with a slip on top. 8×5 x 3.5
3. Two Walnut coved side boxes with Birdseye Maple top. 5×3 x 3.5
4. Ash box with a cherry top. 6×3 x 3
The second picture is a closer look at the spalted maple top which I thought looked pretty cool.
The third picture is a closer look at the birch box with the slip on top which was kind of a challenge to get to fix right, but fun to build.
I can understand why Don loves little wooden boxes.
