I came across this project in a magazine. Next thing I knew, I’d been “volunteered” by the local club to teach a workshop to make them. It seemed like it might be a good idea to try making one before I teach the class. I made it with cherry and walnut. All shaping was done by hand. The finish is lacquer.
This was also my first project steaming wood. The Wife gave me a dirty look when I attached her beloved clothes steamer to a sewer pipe.
A few additonal photos
I sent the box to my mother for Mother’s Day. She’s loves it and she’s using it for knitting supplies. On the card, I said that handmade mother’s day gifts have come a long way since I was a kid.
