I’ve recently noticed an abundance of thin stock laying around the shop, so I’ve been using it for appropriately-sized boxes. Small boxes made from 1/4 – 1/8 thick materials present a fun challenge…. there isn’t a whole lot of room for error! :-)
The top and bottom of this one are floating panels of spalted maple. Finish is a Danish oil, buffed out on my three-wheel buffer. I rarely use box hardware, usually sticking with friction-fit lids, but I decided to use some hardware that has been collecting dust in a drawer for a while. I’d forgotten how much fun it was to work with #1 brass screws (not!).
