A chest I made for my wife’s birthday; the top is laminated from various species, primarily maple with walnut and mahogany accents. This was made with hand-cut dovetails, as a 6-sided cube, then the lid was carefully sawn off. We needed a place for all those mementos of our travels, sea shells, pine cones, old coins, and souvenirs of all kinds. There is room in the lid for a photo album and other papers. As a till I was finally able to use up some old unfinished box projects which were the product of an old box-joint fixture I made out of the X-Y axis of an old optical comparator and a indexing lead screw. The finish is 6 coats of hand-rubbed poly. Hope you like it!
