This is a Redwood and Maple box with black flocking on the interior. Finish is Tung Oil and Wipe-on Poly.
This is the first sliding lid box that I’ve ever done and I was please with results overall. This is my second project using dovetails and although I made a few mistakes, I was ultimately able to correct them and get pretty tight joints. The biggest “mistake” with this project was that as I about to do the flocking on the inside of the box (my last step before completion) and I knocked the box off of my workbench onto the shop floor. It landed on the rails of the slide (the top was not in place) and cracked one corner. I was able to repair the problem pretty well but it is somewhat obvious to the eye which was disappointing to say the least. My wife seemed to think it was fine and didn’t even know it had happened until I showed it to her, so I’m going to go with a win on the repair job. Yet another opportunity to learn! :)
Hope you enjoy!
