My wife needed a box for her kitchen desk so that she could keep it less cluttered. Over a couple of weeks she had asked me for it three times. I figured that this was the third time so if I didn’t hit the ball I was going to be out. Therefore it had become a rush job. I didn’t even have the right hinges so I just made it a lift lid box. She was happy to get it and I wasn’t out so ain’t life grand? I don’t know why she wanted it to be slightly smaller than what I normally make but didn’t ask any questions either. I just made it and figured that I got off lucky.
It’s maple and walnut and finished with 2 coats of Danish oil and one coat of wax. It is 7-3/8 in. long x 5-1/4 in. deep x 4 in. high. The corners are mitered with six splines each.
Thanks for looking
