Extra hickory used for a puppy treat box

I had some leftover hickory from a shelf project (which I hope to post once we have it hung on the wall) so decided to try to make a box. This was intended to have half blind dovetails but I was having quite a bit of tear out on a couple test pieces so I ended up going with mitered corners. I used a piano hinge only to realize I should have made some adjustments in the top to avoid a gap in the front and sides. Never one to fear making an “adjustment” I mitered corners on some scrap strips of hickory which were thankfully the perfect thickness and glued them around the hinge. Another project with a “design element” that makes it unique! Used my router to add the finger hold in the front. Although not perfect, it will be fine for storing puppy treats on the counter. Hickory is really a pretty wood but I haven’t found it to be the easiest to work with. I finished it with GF High Performance.

Clean and elegant!
Though aide from being on a counter, I doubt that box poses much of a challenge in keeping any puppy away from a stash of treats 8^)

I like hickory as well, but any operations aside form simple table saw cuts are always plagued with the battle of the splinters.

Yes…security was not the focus!! I think she could undo a combination lock…sweet but way too smart.

Thanks. She is only about 14 weeks old and a lean 39 pounds. Both parents were 100+ so maybe I should have built a bigger treat box!

Nice job on that treat box, Barbara. I don’t see a lock on it so I’ll bet she can help herself if it is now enough!!
