This box was a lot of fun to make and it provided me with some new challenges.
The wood was from some salvaged trees that I milled on my bandsaw. The cherry tree was victim of the power company right-of-way crew and the walnut was a casualty of hurricane Rita.
This was my first attempt at double-double box joints. I used my incra jig to make the cuts. The setup of the jig was a little complicated. After the jig was set up; making the joints was not too bad.
I mitered the lid, feet and tray. The lining is self-adhering velvet.
It is finished with five coats of wipe on poly.
This is a Christmas gift for my grandmother. I hope she enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it.
Thanks for looking.
Have a great day,
