This box was made in poplar first as a dry run. The top and bottom are frame and panel construction. The hinges are Brusso brass. The top panel is local hard maple planed and sized by hand with a Stanley 7 and rabbetted with a 78. Dovetails are done with an old Disston dovetail saw. The primary wood, like the last project, is cherry. Most cutting is done on a Goodell Pratt mitre box and a BIG Simmonds back saw. The inside top holds a copy on my sons wedding invitation behind plexi glass. As always the fiinish is Watco danish oil and wax.
