I needed a box to house the set of Two Cherry’s chisels that I had purchased. The box has about 3 different schools of carving. The top of the box is a chip carving that I have been learning with the current chip carving class here at lj’s. The side panels are something I have seen Thomas McDonald do. And the front was something I saw on u tube with a gouge. It is all basswood. The sides are blind dovetailed. It was hand plained. The bottom is joined with square pins. And the top is a sliding dovetail. It opens from the bottom. Just a small chisel till held together by glue. I finished it with some cherry gel stain and teak oil. I was going for a rustic look.
