Hi all , yonks back I posted re handles for the blanket box in the pics, in the end after a few beers I came up with what is in the pics, the handles are essentially 2 pieces drilled thru for coach bolts and cross members counter bored for the nuts, capping pieces and rosewood trims applied, seems to work OK. I made the box without any drawings and when hinging the lid an error became apparent, the finger joints at the top protrude front to back and not out of the side so I had to use back flap hinges.
It has the ubiquitous secret drawer.
Each of the finger joints is counterbored 7.2mm and screwed, the plugs are turned from 9 mm square rose wood , a length was chucked and 3 plugs turned and then the square section cut thru with a junior hacksaw and filed to a slight dome , 600 grit paper sanded.
The main timber is Iroko all reclaimed from school lab benches, there was enough gum on the under side to have
given the shareholders of Wriggleys a new car each.

The 3 rosewood bars applied to the front are to hide screw holes ,there are a few more that are drilled out and plugged but the ones at the front needed more work. Critique welcome
Chris

Critique? Nothing to say but looks pretty awesome and I agree with ShaneA, the slide out drawer is great.
