I’m going to take a quick second to post a few of my Christmas projects. I don’t know if any you are familiar with Marc’s Keepsake Box project over at the Wood Whisperer. Here are my versions.
The premise is a box with a secret locking pin that secures the lid. When the pin is removed, the lid slides open along large dovetails revealing a hollowed base for storing all your whozits and whatnots.
I made two versions. The first is a roughly 7×7 semi-round. The second is a 3 ½ x 16 beveled long rectangle. Both are approximately 3 inches thick. My version includes a much thicker lid than the original. It allowed me to sculpt a 1 inch deep trough into the top to act as a change tray/ catchall. The boxes are made of white oak with black walnut accents and the finish is sprayed lacquer.
These were a blast to make… and quick!
