Quick box (4 or 5 hours) inspired by an old Fine Woodworking article.
More about the construction can be found here on the blog .
Made from two pieces of walnut with a mahogany bottom. The sides and lids are 1/4” thick, the bottom is 1/8”
Danish oil finish.
Take a tour around the box
Turn the corner and watch the grain (my favorite corner),
Turn the corner again / watch the grain.
Open the lid.
The lid fits flush with the top so the only way to get it off is to press down on one side which lifts the other side.. I sanded away part of the lid’s bottom to create a lever. You can also turn it over, but that’s no fun.
You can see it on the left side.
Thanks for checking it out. Feel free to critique, suggestions, whatever..
I am not sold on the mohogany bottom. In person it looks less red than the flash photo, but I was running out of wood and have a bunch of 1/8” mahogony scraps.
