A friend of mine commissioned me to build a box for her niece who is having a baby. She wanted a box large enough to store mementos as the baby grows. She requested walnut and zebra wood.
I used Lee Valley hidden hinge pins so there is no visible hardware. The finished size is 11×5 x 4. All the dovetails are hand cut, and I carved and shaped the lid-lift by hand as well. The finish is 1 coat of garnet shellac and then 2 more of blonde. Paste wax to finish it off.
She was very happy. Thanks for looking.
