The latest box...

Yep, it’s another box, fresh out of the finishing department…
The sides of this one were made from Mahogany that Brother David, the Patron, was kind enough to send me a while back.
The top and bottom, some old White Oak drawer sides I scrounged from my Parent’s basement. They actually came from a bureau that belonged to my Great Grandmother… so it had some age and personal history attached to it.
The “hardware” is Cherry.
It’s bigger than I usually make and a little sloppy… No excuse, but my mind was distracted…
I was going to blog the hinge and lid-lift attachment, but it went uneventfully, and I’ve shown that half a dozen times anyway.
It’s not necessary for it’s original intent, so now I have to figure something to use it for…
But it had twelve pegs in the hinges… Isn’t there a twelve days of something? :)

I really like this! The hinges are awesome. It is cool too that you were able to use wood with some history to it.

Great project!

Sheila :)

Wonderful! I really like it…keep ‘em coming! I haven’t been active on LJ lately because now that I don’t have to heat the shop it’s full steam ahead with the work that has piled up. I feel very pleasantly swamped. Best, Stephen

I also think it came out really nice. The scrollwork on the top adds a nice touch.

Mike, I too like the scrool work and overall appearance. It gives it a colonial style perspective!!!!!! Nice box.
