Box?

Here’s a project that isn’t really a box, or is it?

This clock is from a design published in Woodsmith magazine Vol. 24 / No. 144. The top of the clock lifts off to reveal a secret compartment in which one can place valuables. (Yep – must be a box.)

The wood is a mix of various Australian species. The body is Australian Blackwood, the dark trim is Jarrah, and the top is curly Blackbutt.

The finish is my favourite; four coats of hardened shellac, cut polish and traditional wax. It’s a quick and easy finish which always results in a sensuously silky-smooth finish.”
