I’ve got a hairy project (red oak trophy case with a mirror back, glass shelves and mortise/tenon doors…) I’ve been putting off for a while and decided to get the juices flowing by making another box to help get my MOJO back. I have lots of cut-offs from other projects and as usual, kept a few pieces for whatever. My idea was to build it on a pedestal base with a similar top to balance it out. I used a 1/4” round over bit on top, bottom and vertical edges. I used Minwax Puritan Pine and my usual final coat and buff of Johnson’s floor wax. The measurements are, base – 8 1/2” x 4 7/8”, overall height 10 1/2”, lid 7” x 4 7/8”, main case 6 1/8” x 4 7/8” and the interior is 5” x 3 3/4”. The wood was planed down to 9/16”.
It’s not a great piece but my MOJO is back! ;0)
It’ll will be a gift for in-laws that are visiting next month.
I thought a brass fish knob might be good…
