lol the short story…I found a scrap piece of crownmolding, nuff said.

anyway, I cut the top of the crownmolding off to make the lid. I used the router table to cut a rabbit in the top and base then added oak strips to the base to form the lip for the lid. The purpleheart was the cut off from my argyle pattern box. Its got a lot of room for all my pendants, and future ones too.

Made of oak crown, walnut and purpleheart.

Great use of scraps. Have made a crown molding box myself but, it is in california and still haven’t gotten pics of it.

Keep it up.
