Hi Everyone Finally getting around to posting the rest of the 10 series of small boxes I made, one of them did not make it for the photos. All are 5 by 8 by 3 1/2”, give or take a bit, and are of the same construction. Box joints, raised floor, mitered paneled lid with a lip cut to fit into the box body, mortised all brass hinges, with chain to hold the lid. I used several different catches on front, one is a home made copper peg and hole catch, I gave that one to Jacob, my nephew, I hope he hangs on to the pegs. I finished them with a natural stain, and two or three coats of clear poly. All of the original 10 are gone, mostly as gifts, save two I saved for my own collection, since Cindy already has 5, I figured I better start keeping some myself. Two we gave to Cindy’s Son in Law, Glen, and her grandson Jaxson pictured above, Jaxson seemed very interested in what was inside the box. This part of box making is what I Love the most, the impact and interest it creates with those whom we share with. Lots of boxes to make, so, I better go back to work, thanks for looking and have a great day!
