Mahogany box with maple pull, cedar ply bottom, and a copper patina top from a piece left over from a garden gate. The sides were cut from a single piece that was resawed then wrapped for grain matching. The legs were formed by cutting away the middle sections with a dado set. It is finished with several coats of clear lacquer; satin over gloss. I will rub on a coat of Renaissance wax when it cures. This is the first time I used Soss hinges and made a template to guide the router. I plan to do a blog on my experience (struggles) with various hinges. I also plan to add a couple of small trays. The maple pull was interted into a mortise cut with the Mortise Pal making it a very easy process.
