This box is larger than most of the boxes that I build but I had a custom order for a 20×12x9” Sinker Cypress small chest without any sculpting or carving. It is made from one board that was 16” wide and about 11 ft. long.
The entire box was glued together and the top was cut off after drying. The top is built with a floating panel and space balls to prevent expansion problems of a large top.
The finish I used is water based poly. I like this finish on the old cypress because it helps preserve the patina of the cypress better than lacquer or an oil based finish.
