Here is my most recent project. It was requested by a friend, who wanted it solely for the purpose shown – to hold $100 bills (I know, must be a tough problem to have, huh?)
It is basically scrap wood, and the construction is pretty self explanatory. Maple and mahogany.
The only time power tools were used on this was for thicknessing the wood, and ripping the mahogany for the lid. All surfacing and joinery was done by hand. The dovetails aren’t perfect, but they are the first really “presentable” ones I’ve done.
Finish is just danish oil followed by tung oil.
Thanks for looking.
