A while ago, I posted a project that I made for my wife, called a Mini Apothecary Box (view here ) As I said in that original post, it seems like she has a million of these little bottles, and although that box has served her well at her shop, she wanted one that she can use to transport oils when she does chair massage or house visits.
So this is the end result of her wishes. Its basic dado & rabbet construction, and a mix of Mahogany for the main box, and QS Oak barnwood for the top. For the lid, I used the method of gluing the entire box together first, and cutting the lid off using the table saw after the glue-up. Once again, I included Faux feet (I now am in love with this technique) and a felt liner on the inside base.
The box can hold up to 9 small bottles, and is just what she was looking for. I stained the mahogany with Minwax Red Oak, but left the lid to show its natural beauty. Finished off with 3 coats Arm-R-Seal wipe-on poly.
Thanks for looking, as always be sure to comment and let me know what you think!
