This is my first posted project. I made my wife a new recipe box. The dimensions are 5.5 inches deep by 7 inches wide by 4.5 inches high.
I resawed the wood on my table saw, and then finished the cuts with a hand saw. I wanted to have the grain wrap around the box but that didn’t work as I had planned. The concept of wrapping the grain seemed so simple. My skills were not ready for the precision that you need to pull it off. I am, however, satisfied with the final product. Cherry is such a good looking wood.
I like the looks of wooden hinges and made these. The finish is boiled Linseed Oil.
