this is my most recent project and it was a ball of fun to work on. i had yet to incorporate drawers in any of my boxes so i thought it would be a great opurtunity. its made with curly maple and honduras mahogany. the very top is made of cherry. dont ask me how i got the legs atached to the box because that was not fun. haha. i put a small V groove on the inside of the leg to fit snug on each corner of the box. i am sure thiere were beter ways to atatch it but thats all i could think of at the time. i reinforced the joint with screws from the inside of the carcase because i was concearned that the glue joint just wasnt suficient enough to hold. the drawers run in and out on a sliding dado. each drawer will be lined with velvetine. i used boiled linseed oil and a coat or two of paste wax to give it a dull sheen. this as well as most of my other boxes will be taken to a craft fair some time this year. if they do well enough is the question? i am having a bit of a pickle in deciding what i will price these boxes at. any help would be great. i just dont have the slightest clue.
