Small promo item for my coffin business Victory Coffin Company. Lock box made from new and old cherry. The lid and bottom are reclaimed barn loft boards which are also cherry. The sides are newer cherry. Finished with danish oil, amber shellac, and then dark furniture wax. Half-mortise lock from Horton Brasses. www.victorycoffin.com

Looks well done. What color danish oil did you use. I have a large amount of cherry that I work with and I have been using the Watco natural danish oil.

Pretty cool. I’m glad you added the photo with the hammer, because sitting against the tree it sure looked bigger !

Nice work Michael.

I agree with Joe the aspects certainly made it look bigger, like something the size to put a “naughty boy” in.

Also I couldnt resist with my Router Box and hammer!!

Thought you would appreciate it too !!

Keep up the good work.

@tholdfart – I actually found cherry ‘flavored’ danish oil and thats what I went with. Then warmed it up a bit with amber shellac thinned with denatured alcohol.

@robscastle – Nice work on the mini casket. You should think about scaling it up.
