Here’s my latest small box. I love doing these in my “spare” shop time while I’m doing bigger projects as well. This one is Narra, with (bookmatched) Cocobolo top, and walnut bottom. Measures 6 1/4” x 4 5/8” x 2 1/8”. Finish on the box and bottom is wipe on poly, and paste wax. Cocobolo doesn’t like oil finishes (don’t even bother trying anymore) so it was sealed and buffed with dewaxed shellac, and then got some paste wax as well. Sanded up to 1000 grit, this baby is smooooo-oooth!
This is the first box where I cut a thin groove on the inside of the box while the board was still one piece, then after assembly, cut the lid off, making the rabbet that the lid now fits perfectly on. Worked great!
Anyway, thanks for looking!
