Still like a deep freeze up here in Maine, figured I would post another project. This box was one of my very first ones. It is an oak box made from pallet wood. It has box joints and has a mitered picture framed book end matched veneer lid. I also put some walnut keys in the lid, that was a real challenge to do with out any real solid jig, just set it up with clamps and was real careful with the table saw, one mess up and I would be done. Any thing like that from here on out will be done with a reliable jig. The solid brass hinges are mortised, and it has a raised floor, this box was before my logo came into existence. It has a couple coats of linseed oil, and paste wax as a finish. I gave this box to the Love of my Life, Cindy, she is getting quit the collection by now. Well, it was lots of fun and a real challenge for one of my first endeavors into woodworking. Thanks for looking.
