One of the boxes box I made for a charity auction this fall and since it’s Canada’s 150 Birthday I thought adding a carved maple leaf would add to this box.
Made from mahogany which is textured a pair of shop made leather hinges see attached link for more info on the leather hinges http://lumberjocks.com/projects/88187
and a velour liner for the bottom .
Finished with three coats of poly .

Comments and questions always welcome .

Thanks Jim
For this type of texture I use a small trim router with the base removed and a 3/8” carbide ball mill cutter and do a random pattern not difficult to do and took about 15 minutes .I do this before cutting the sides and top to size .

Very good Klaus… Do you have the bit length set to one depth then just poke, move, poke move, etc. varying the depth by controlling how far you let the router cut as want? It looks like the texture depth varies across the surface.. (?)

It’s a beauty of a box Klaus. You really are getting me intrigued with that textured look . I may have to give this a go when the cold weather comes. Nice touch with the leaf. If you need more maple leafs I can send you a million of them. LOL. The charity should be a success.

Great looking box Klaus. I really like the texture you have created; the mahogany has a nice warm look. Nice work on the box and the Maple leaf is a nice Autumn touch.
