I took the jewelry box design from Gary Rogowski and changed the dimensions and made a Bible box instead. Obviously I left it a bit larger in case I change Bibles in the future or if my next devotional book is larger.
The box is made from cherry, I chose to made the corner joints flush as opposed to having them overhang and then went with a solid cherry bottom so I did not use rice paper or anything on the bottom. The inlay on the top is made from Walnut and the dowels on the corner are from an assortment pack from Woodcraft.
The finish is Minwax polyurethane that I sprayed with my airbrush. I did 4 coats sanding with 320 and 400 grit sandpaper in between each coat.
This box had a lot of first for me: first time I had tried to do an inlay (used my plunge router and spiral bit), first time with this style corner joint, first time doing a bread board top. I learned a lot on this project and had a lot of fun making it.
Thanks for looking.
