Clarence,This box has an unusually warm and attractive quality. Nicely done. I like it a lot. Look to see more boxes from you.

I like it. For my 10 cents (Canadian) that’s a nice bit of carving too :-)

Nice box. What is the story behind the hook bladed knife?

Thanks to all for the kind words.
Yes Paul, it is the Bluenose, a wonderful reminder of how function and form can coexist together.
WayneC the hook knife is from Lee Valley, and I use it in carving bowls and spoons.

Thanks Clarence. I ordered one. Looks like they are now discontinued and limited to stock on hand.

Nice presentation, considering plywood was used. How did you finish it, water stain? If you still have product details/the finishing steps, please share them.

ChuckM, thanks for the comments – the finish is simply tung oil, then amber shellac. Not too much effort was put into a great finish!

Clarence, it’s really a nice tool box and that sailboat looks wonderful on it.
