Well first I need to appologize for the quality of the picture. I was rushed to design and build the box. A lady contacted me and wanted something to give her fiance as a wedding gift. He collects boxes. this was on a tuesday night, she was getting married the following tuesday. After going back and forth for a day on the design and wood this is what i came up with. She saw the butler tray i built like this. Basic dovetail construction. The box is black walnut from a piece I had leftover from an 8/4 board. I resawed the board and was able to match the grain all the way around. The top is inset down about 3/16”. I’m glad she wanted it this way. Used it to test a design I’ve been wanting to build for a chest.
The finish is a Polyeurathan, BLO, pure tung oil blend.
