This Sunday is Fathers Day here in Australia and a friend wanted to give her husband a “Man Box”... [ever since she saw the first one I made… she has been wanting one for him.].
The main part of the box is made from Mango Wood that I bought online from a mill in Maryborough, Queensland. It is mitered in the corners and a piece of ply fitted to a groove for the base. Top is book matched.
I then used some off cuts of Camphor Laurel I got from LJer Kenscraft aka Ken; he had cut rebates in the 1’ square stock for the tops of his wishing wells..
I mitered and glued these L-shaped peices on the edges of the box.. thereby making a frame..
brass hinges were installed at the outer edge of the back on the framing. A little purple felt was glued inside on the bottom only and a divider made from Queensland Rosewood, not to be confused with NGR. A small piece of brass chain holds the lid avoiding the tearing out of the hinge screws. Finished with two coats of poly and wax.
Cork feet on the base to stop damage to any furniture surface it is place on.
I even used my new brand on the base underneath,
