I have reclaimed my shop/garage….....first new project in a while. This is my first time with Honey Locust wood. It was donated by a friend. Honey locust works and finishes well, and I thought the walnut trim would set off the natural gold color. The box is approx. 6×6 inches, with a 10 degree taper on the sides. The lid is a glue-up of 9 components, plus the knob. The top contours give it an Asian flare….sort of a pagoda feel. The underside of the lid is rabbeted 1/8+ inch to fit the box interior. The tray is made from the same woods and lined with leather, as is the bottom of the box. Everything is finished with satin poly.
