Well my friends this is truly a “scrap project”. If you viewed by last project, the blanket chest, you will see that the material is Pomelle Sapele with an upholstered top. The scraps were too nice to throw away so I made these boxes. The size was pretty much determined by the sizes of the scrap pieces. I lined the boxes with the left over upholstery material and added a mirror to the lid. The challenge was to miter all of the pieces, including the lid, as I had no edgebanding to conceal any exposed core. Mitering the lid on all four edges so it dropped into the edge was pretty cool since it worked! If it hadn’t worked you would not be reading this. I’m kinda proud since the scrap didn’t sit around for a decade then get thrown away.
