I have been learning new techniques by taking on box making. Have made three boxes so far and this one is by far the more challenging. Primarily cherry, but the quilt pattern lid has cherry, maple, walnut, purpleheart, poplar, pine and a wood I don’t know. It was just given to me. Clearly a very hard wood. I’m guessing it’s either maobi or bubinga. Anyway, the removable tray is made from that as well. Cove cut sides using table saw (that was interesting). No stain, finished with 4 coats of Minwax gloss wipe on poly. Lined with deep green velour cloth. Brusso hinges. Made as a gift.
Will post more boxes latet as this is some really fun stuff to do.
Want to tackle a glass lid display box for collectible or antique pistols. That will require foam molding and I don’t know about covering the foam with fabric. I’ll cross that bridge when I get there.
UPDATE – added photo of quilt pieces cut and the original glue up of lid panel before cutting edges.
