Another little box using scraps. It looks so formal, hence the name.
I gave this to Jodi, a friend of ours.
The body is made from offcuts of maple and its hard to believe that all four body pieces are from differant boards, the grain lines up perfectly on two corners! Very cool effect.
The bottom is cherry.
Deft rattle can spray lacquer in semi-gloss.
Brass pins for hinges.
The lid was made from a punky piece of zircote that was definitely past the ” Best if used by” date on the label, but I new I would find a way to use some of it in time. I had to rebuild a few areas with CA but its a wonderful, rich looking piece and worth saving.
