My first fine woodworking project was a small box, it was not very pretty. Now a few years later this is my second attempt.
The box 10.5” X 10.5” squared. It has mitered corners with contrasting splines to reinforce the mitered joints. The bottom and top are frame and panel. The wood species is maple and mahogany. I finished the box with:
- 1 coat BLO
- 3 coats clear shellac
I used some leftover scraps to make dividers for the inside. The lid is a rabbeted frame that fits on top.
