I finished 2 new boxes today… Based on Gary Rogowski’s design and Marc Spagnuolo’s video. They are both around 9.5” x 12.5” basically so you can fit an 8.5×11 paper in then. One is made of quartersawn white oak, it has breadboard ends on the lid and the joints are proud on the corners, It also has chamfers on all corners. The Walnut one also has breadboard ends on the lid but the joints are all cut flush and all the corners are crisp. They are both finished with 3 coats of a Danish Oil Finish. I really had fun making these boxes. and I feel like I am getting better and better with every box I make… But I still have a lot to learn. These were a lot of fun Because aside from the initial milling of the boards I did all with Hand tools and used liquid hide glue for the first time.
