this box was made to hold a container for a relative’s ashes.
Dimensions are 270×220x265mm deep.
It was made from as single board of Maple which I cut into 3 pieces for side and 2 for top,
matching up the figure/grain direction in a wrap-around.
The inserts and base/foot assembly are Cherry.
The bottom is Spalted Beech.
I shaped the top with a hand-plane and finished with my ROS.
The hinges are traditional brass with brass screws,
checked out the notch with chisels.
I finished with 3-4 coats of poly varnish.
Might consider another couple of coats as the plan is to inter the ashes.
While I was waiting for varnish to dry,
made up a pair of sleds for cutting small stock.
One each at 90 & 45 degrees.
Need to get some hardware to make up some proper stops,
and then plan to try some small boxes from a box of Oak flooring I was given.
Thank you for looking, and any comments/suggestions are welcome.
P.S. shout to geekwooodworker for sled plans.
Cheers, Jinky (James).
