This is my latest completed project. I followed the plans from FWW #203 by Peter Turner. I added a few personal touches but mostly stayed true to the original in design.
It’s made from air dried cherry, maple, and aromatic cedar. The panels are maple with a 1/4” thick cedar lamination on the inside. A Festool Domino made quick work of the loose tenon joinery. I used Rockler’s “Lid Stays” 60 in lbs each which function very well. Hand cut dovetails on the inner box. ( I still need a lot more practice)
The finish is a few coats of danish oil and a couple of coats wax on top. It was an enjoyable project and challenged me as I had never incorporated so many angles in a single project. Each side is angled 3* inward.
Thanks for looking,
