This memory box / small chest was requested by my daughter to give to friends of hers in Dallas who lost their son and his grandfather in a tragic swimming pool accident earlier this summer.
The case is 10” x 16”, Materials are Sapele with Maple accents. Finish is 4 coats ARM R SEAL satin.
Mitered corners, raised panel (using table saw for coves) and deep / narrow mortises for the lock and quadrant hinges all firsts for me and my next project will be a shooting board to make the miters a bit tighter than I could get tuning them by eye with a block plane.
