I have been building boxes lately. It all started when I needed something for a fundraising auction. I decided on a box. But then I couldn’t decide on a design. So I started just building different designs. I like this box and I like the lid, not crazy about the combo… I think I may cut the lid down a little so it is closer to the size of the box. or maybe taper the legs so they are not so blockish. The oak and walnut came out of a church that was being remodeled. I think the oak was chair rail. The walnut was part of a coat rack. It was headed for the landfill. There were a lot of pieces 3/4” X 3-1/2” wide by about 3-4 feet long – about right for these boxes. I removed all the nails then removed the profile and finish at the planer. The Cherry has some curl in it and is pretty. I even like the knot – I think it ties with the small one on the front of the box.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
