These are some boxes I made for Christmas presents for my family. These are a spin-off of Andy's designer boxes he made for his grand kids. His are sculpted and shaped, which I would have liked to do with these, but I just did not have the time. Its always so busy this time of year.
The boxes are made from padauk, quilted maple, brazilian cherry, olive wood, black walnut and a small ebony detail on one of the handles. I made the two handles on the padauk boxes, but I really wanted something silver against the padauk lids so those handles are store bought. It kinda felt like cheating, but I do like silver on red. The bottoms are lined with green vinyl.
They are about 6 1/2”x 4 1/2” and 2 3/4” high. I finished them with wipe on poly which Andy suggested and is my first time using. Thanks for looking and any comments/suggestions/critique are appreciated. Thanks again Andy!
