December, 2010 – This box started as a glue up of yellowheart and walnut. The handles are walnut also. This combination of wood really popped once the clear lacquer gloss spray went on. This was my first project with yellowheart and I found it to be easy to work with.
When I designed this I wanted it to kind of come to a point on the upper right. Now that it’s completed I think maybe I exaggerated the point too much. The top drawer has a rather long lip that could have been avoided with a better design.
The other interesting thing was making the curved front. It is not flat. But the “wave” in the front is rather gentle. It occurred to me later that in might be interesting to accentuate that wave such that vertical stripes of walnut appear from the front view. I need to try that.
