This is a proto type box design that I am working on and it sat around on the bench and when a buddy showed up he ask if I could make look old and add a hammered look to it . I was a bit puzzled but why not give it a try and this is the result and he is happy .
The box has seven degree beveled sides made from 1/2” material and compound mitre cuts at the corners .
The drawer runs on wooden slides and has a inset round handle with a simple bar as a pull .The top is solid with a rim build up on the bottom side to give a raised look and shadow line and is hinged with solid brass butt hinges and a ball chain stay . I used dark brown cloth as a liner for the interior but wished after that I would have used leather.
The hammered look was done with a small router and ball mill and finished with dark walnut oil and bees wax and a bit of sanding to give it some distress and wear appearance .
Not my favorite but the next box will have the design features like the shape and angled drawer front etc. .
In the end it was nice to make someone smile and happy and that is what it’s all about !
