I wasn’t gonna post this at first, but, then I said, what the hey. Here it is. A Walnut box, about 14×3 1/2×2 1/2. The pieces are all 1/4” thick. Let me give a big Thnx to Steve Ramsey for his detailed description of how to do this (I’ll call it a friction fit lid). I watched his video when he built a small box with a very nice detailed “how-to” do this type of lid on any box. Here is a link to it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=osOXOZIVOv8 ...................Anyhoo, the wifee started painting on canvas’ here a while back and she needed a small box to keep her brushes when she traveled with her friends to get together to paint. This is it. Box joints/finger joints, and rabbits keep this together. I didn’t bother filling in the openings from the rabbited top and bottom of the box. I did add a little of what I’ll call, “box-bling”.....LOL. It’s just a few different sized and species dowel rods, (Cherry, Oak, & Beech). I kinda like the way it came out. The wood-bling goes across the top, and down the side. Sorry bout the long explanations in some (all) o my posted projects. I guess I like to ramble. OK, Anyhoo, again, this is finished with cotton wipes inside a stocking with Danish Oil. (A wipe on of 3 coats). As always, thnx for lookin in, and any and all comments, good/bad/ugly will be very appreciated.
