This is the 6th box of the 7 rush boxes.
The box is small and lightweight. Another challenge in using kamagong very thin slat (3 mm thick) used as the front and back sides. The top and bottom is also thin (4 mm thick) and framed with pinkies mahogany. Though the wood used where cut-off and recycled, the quality and strength is still in it. The technique I used in joinery is same with Megan’s and Janna’s boxes where a special handcut dovetail joint was made. The left and right sides were all thick and strong BALAYONG (same quality of NARRA but a bit harder) The bottom is attached to the sides by routing a groove at exact fit. I have made several passes using a 3 mm straight bit. (See photo 6) The hinges are special but quite big. I have to file the protruding screw.
I already posted this but without finish. The plan is to use poly.
