I just finished this quarter-sawn red oak box. The oak is reclaimed from an old Tennessee barn beam. I like using rabbets on boxes, but i wanted to add some interest to this box so I added walnut pins on the front and back. The lift is walnut as well. The hinges are antiqued brass.
I burnished the oak then filled the pores with beeswax and burnished again. The finish is 3 coats of garnet shellac and then paste wax to shine it up.
8.5” wide, 4” deep, and 2.75” high.
Thanks for looking.
