Something I did playing around one afternoon a while back. Idea was taken directly from one of Doug Stowe’s box making books. I goofed a little and didn’t allow for the thickness of the leather so the lid does not sit as tightly as I would like. The sides are rabbeted and then pinned with bamboo skewers. Finished with Danish Oil if I remember correctly.

I plan to revisit this one sometime in the future because it was a lot of fun to make. I gave it to my oldest son and he loves it anyway. It’s full of trinkets now.

Nice looking box. I still need to get ahold of Dougs book.

Keep up the great work.
