I named this box the “Bridge / Lantern” box because those are the two objects that most inspired the design.
The Base (lantern base)
The underside of the base was roughly shaped on the table saw while the top was shaped on the disc/belt sander. Top and bottom were further shaped by hand with rasps, chisels, sandpaper and a lot of elbow grease!
The Sides (Andy-ish)
The sides were inspired by Andy’s boxes, but instead of using an angle grinder I used the end of the disc/belt sander (be very careful if you try this method).
The Lid (Bridge)
The lid handle was roughly shaped as was the lid prior to laminating them together.
Lid – Birdseye Maple
Lid handle – Mahogany
Sides – Cherry
Base – Maple
