This is one of my entries this year at the OC fair.
The box was meticulously handplaned even the top and then polished with very thin coats of blonde shellac.
The feet were shaped with a tablesaw scraper and some sandpaper to smooth out the details.
Not shown are brusso quadrant hinges to hold the lid open.
I tried my best on this piece as it was the last of my clarowalnut and I feel my craftsmanship would satisfy a perfectionist :)
Comments welcome
Thanks Aj

I had to look up ” clarowalnut ” yes that would satisfy any perfectionist, what are the dimensions and where can I find that awesome lock hardware?

Wow. This is one distinctive box. Good luck in the competition but I don’t think you’ll need it. Your craftsmanship and design are top notch. Great job!
