First attempt at a hinged box. This was a gift to my father-in-law; the scroll design on the cover is his initials CH.
I have to blame—-er, thank LJ John Hutchinson for inspiring me with his frogs, enough to subscribe to the scrollsaw magazine and get me started on this project. Also, MUST say I have a whole new respect for all you scrollsaw workers out there… don’t know how you do it. This was way more of a headache than I thought it would be… and the staining… aghgh… Next time I see a box with a scrolled top I will pay a lot more attention. I like the final result, it was worth it. Made of mahogany.
