Here’s my Box on Stilts. It’s my interpretation of a box by Tony Lydgate published in one of his books. The four sides and lid are from Huon Pin. The legs and lid handle is from Macassar Ebony. The sides are first mitred, glued up, then the tapers were cut on my table Saw. The curved top was shaped on a linisher. The finish is sanding sealer and wax. The body of the box is 180mm (7”) high, 75mm (3”) square at the base of the box and 65mm (2.5”) square at the top. The overall height including the lid handle and Stilts is 270mm (10.5”).
This is one of two boxes I have kept for myself.
