Shaker style candle box for my wife. I am finding out that women like candle boxes. Last count I have request for six more.
Sapele top, either maple or mahogany sides. Walnut miter splines. Wipe on poly. At wife’s request, I left off the typical molding trim that would surround the base. But that was decided AFTER I installed splines… so they may look a little high. Also I went a little different on the slide out end of the top.
This is project we did in a two day (excluding finishing) Mason-Dixon Woodworkers work shop and we used lumberjock Jack D's shop. Great fun.
Used a Kehoe jig for the miter splines.
