Special project for a special niece who had lost her dog. She wanted a box large enough to contain her pet’s ashes and also room for her leash and favorite chew-bone.
I milled some black walnut down to 7/16” and ‘coopered’ the top. Box was made from poplar with black walnut trim and legs. Entire inside was covered with black flocking. The finish is several coats of Waterlox.
I don’t like the shiny brass catch on the front so my artistic wife has promised to paint the latch to match the handles.
My niece plans to display the box on a table by the front door of her home.
