My client has a knickknack wall in her home with items sitting on their own black shelves. They also have a lot of A&C style furniture and she mentioned they used to live in a Prairie style home. I used that as my inspiration for the box & shelf.
She let me design and make these pieces sight unseen as long as the minimum internal dimensions were met. I really had a great time designing and making them. :)
I had never made a frame and panel box this small before and there were some challenges dealing with 1/8” grooves & tenons. Except for the hinge rail which is 3/4” to accommodate the hinge screws, the rails & stiles are 1/2”x1/2”. The box is 10”x5.5”x4” of qswo and bubinga. The shelf is 12”x7”x6.5” of wenge. The hinges are Horton Brasses. I used the standard Watco Danish Oil, rattle can gloss lacquer and Johnson’s paste wax. I also lined the bottom with black felt.
Thanks for looking.
