Yesterday I posted a box I made from some Spalted Maple that me and my dad cut up from what was to be firewood. We were lucky to get some really nice spalted maple from the log. They were really small boards so I figured I would use them for boxes.
Like my box from yesterday, this one is also made out of Maple and Mahogany. I made it with the same style drop in lid as I did the other one. With this box I used spline joints rather then the dovetails. To make this box I glued a piece of maple in the middle of two mahogany boards. I then ripped it on the table saw to get thinner boards to make the box sides. The bottom was added later. Box is finished with a few coats of tung oil and wax.
Yes, I am hooked on boxes now! More to come!
