So, I really liked the sliding top wine boxes I made with maple and walnut and decided to make a couple with walnut and maple. Sounds odd, but it’s not. Maybe… Ennyhoo, I did it a bit different this time. Instead of nice, squared-off, relieved corners, I went with all beveled edges – there are (I think…) 23 bevels on this box. That’s a bunch of tiny-edge sanding! But, I believe it was worth it. I plan on lining the bottom with a black felt. Finish is Minwax semi-gloss poly.
Added two new pics – front-corner shots, showing the bookmatched end and more grain & color detail in the sides.
I did make a second one, however comma I kinda messed up sanding down that big front bevel and chewed my way into the inside. I’m attempting a cover-up fix for it and will post pics at a later date.
Thanks for stopping by!
