Personal project – Bible Box for storing some Bibles that have been passed down from my paternal grandmother and great-grandmother. Solid cherry with solid frame and panel lid. Walnut splines and walnut feet, interior picture frame is also, you guessed it, walnut. Bottom is walnut plywood. Both the cherry and walnut were milled into lumber from logs given to me by various people.Finished with a sealcoat of poly and then buffed out with orange oil and beeswax combo. The royal blue for the tassel was chosen for it’s consideration as a “heavenly” color –
Size is approximately 5 1/4×10 x 15 with half mortise box lock from Horton Brasses.
Up close pictures of the interior.
