I made this box out of 3/4 red oak for my grandmother. This was my first box and my first inlay. I just started woodworking this year and I am learning a lot with every project. I would like to take a few classes but need to save up in order to take them (I’ve been spending all my money on new tools and wood). The finish is boiled linseed oil and wax.
The inside is lined with felt from Ethan Allen (found a whole bunch cheap on craigslist). I had to make a shooting board to fix the miters. My compound miter saw is off parallel quite a bit. I didn’t notice until I tried to do a dry fit.
I had a great time with this project and look forward to starting to make more complex projects in the future.
