This is one of my other projects of 2014. My 99 year old grandmother died in March just a few months short of what would have been her 100th birthday. I received her silverware set she and my grandfather had purchased in 1947. It’s case was falling apart and I thought it needed something special. I found the plans for this one in an issue of Woodworker’s Journal and thought it would be perfect. It is mostly solid walnut with a walnut plywood bottom and wenge dovetail keys to reinforce the mitered joints. I splurged on the Brusso hardware the magazine recommended- very expensive but very nice. It was coated with several coats of spray shellac and wax. I hope to pass it on to my kids and grandkids someday.
