Anchors Aweigh, Brazilian Cherry and Maple box with carved walnut anchor. This box was made especially to sell at the Minnesota Marine Art Museum, here in Winona, MN….and it went immediately. It features curved sides and maple corner and lift-tab detail, and the lid is hinged with hidden pins. Approx. 5.5×8.5 and finished with hand-rubbed poly.

I’m always anxious to see your next carved lid appliqué. Leaves, seals, dolphins, and now anchors. And they always look great. What’s next?

Hi jb,

Very nicely done. Will have to try the corner detail on the next ones.
Was in Winona this spring to see Fastenal. Winona rocks.

Thanks jb

JB, that box has real class and you should be proud of it. I’d say it’s ship shape for sure soooo nice going.
