Just getting back into a little wood working and had some scrap cedar laying around. I was re-sawing some pieces and luckily cut this knot perfectly in half, so I used it for the cover.

Unlike the Space Shuttle that looks like a perfect re entry effort!
My Assessment:-
Box joints get a tick …well done
Cannot see the hinges (0)
Clasp an interesting variation on a simple latch so thats a tick as well
Cannot see inside (0)
I hope thats not the wifes car bonnet otherwise you may be in trouble!

Welcome back
I case you have forgotten you can post up to six pictures in the Project area, and then as many as you like in the story area along with all the interesting methods used to achive such a nice piece.

Scrap timber eh , well I wish I had some “scrap timber” like it just lying around!
