Hi Everyone

This is another of the 5 tiger/curly Maple boxes I made. This was a wedding present for my niece Anna, and her new husband Brett. They where married this past summer. It is very similar to the other wedding box I made, this one does not have the blood wood in the lid, and the center panel is raised slightly. It has an raised antique wood floor, which came from an antique dresser drawer that my brother Herb gave to me. The joints are mitered on this box. The lid was cut from the box after the top was glued on, and the over sized solid brass hinges where mortised into the back of the box. I wanted to try something different, giving the box a more utilitarian look, I don’t think they will ever wear out anyway. Finished with linseed oil and paste wax. Anna and Brett loved it, so that is the important thing. Thanks for looking

Great job. I really like the contrast of the woods and the raised effect on top. Thanks for sharing.

Bigike- I used a linseed oil and several coats of paste wax, I explained to them that it would need to be waxed periodically in the future and would gain luster over time, thanks for asking
