A nice project to help hone a few skills I have been working on. Making box joints and carving.
The bead box was made for a Christmas gift. It is made up of Oak frame box jointed at the ends. The one long side is a slide out drawer that is inter-laced with birch ply making the small compartments for the beads. It is roughly held by magnets.
The top is pine with the carved flower and a boarder make with a router. I routed the boarder so the beads can sit in the groove when making a necklace.
The oak was finished with a walnut stain and the pine with BLO. All covered with a few coats of wiping poly.
