An Aide at my school asked me to make a sewing ‘basket’ or box for her. She had bought one and it promptly fell apart. I got some details of what she wanted and this is the result. A straight forward box build with mitered corners and keys of Maple. The center keys extend into the box body to support a tray. I used some Redheart for the tray handle. I left the inside of the box unfinished, but did finish the tray which I thought might get lots of handling. The new thing for me was adding a handle. I used Watco Natural Danish Oil for the finish. Only two coats because the Cedar usually won’t take more and ever dry. It is 11”L x 7 1/2” W x 7”H.
She said she only does mending, not fancy sewing, so I did not add any thing to the tray like a pin cushion, etc.
While sanding the Cedar I was reminded that I need to get a respirator. My sinuses don’t like Cedar anymore!!
The good paper masks are not cutting it.
Thanks for looking
