Aj, you have used some beautiful wood here. Nice job on the dovetails. The “horns” are an interesting concept as are the small feet. Your patient scraping really brought out the figure in the grain. I see you have mastered quadrant hinges…nice work. The lid looks a little heavy to me. Why did you choose to make it so thick? Thanks for sharing your excellent work. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Thanks for the comments,Box guy asked about the thickness of the lid.Your are correct box guy I do leave them a little thick.Thin pieces will sometimes warp and twist more when I saw the parts away from the base.

OOOH LA LA! Love that grain! My wife cracks me up…says she doesn’t like white oak because of the grain, but I spotted a dresser with a mirror for sale up the street from us. Yup, QSWO. I didn’t tell her until we got it home. It’s gorgeous, like this box. Those horns are an interesting feature. I have some small boards with that kind of figure. I’ll keep collecting pieces until I can make another chest for my carving tools from nicely figured QSWO. Given my cheapness, that may not happen before I die, though. :/
