This is my first attempt at a box project. Just so happens its going to be birthday present for my daughter. Can’t wait to see her reaction!
The materials used are maple and cherry and the overall dimensions are 11.5”w x 8”d x 4.75”h. I put a couple coats of antique oil finish on it. After some time, the cherry should darken so there will be more contrast between the woods. The heart is thin piece of birdseye maple that’s been cut and carved to shape. A piece of adhesive backed felt lines the bottom.
I’ve learned a few things along with way with this – particularly about hinge alignment. Guess I’ll just need to practice, practice, practice.
