Hello Jock’s, today I’m posting one of five boxes that were inspired by fellow Jock J. Schutz’s arrowhead box design. The base of his design and the dimensions really caught my eye so I had to try my hand at this project. Using some of my favorites Cherry and Birdseye Maple combo for the first go around reassured me what a eye pleasing box John had come up with thanks for the inspiration on this build John. The finish is a hand rubbed Danish Oil, French Polish and finally a Myland’s wax coat for a satiny smooth finish. Thanks for viewing ….BC

Just beautiful… that bird’s eye and cherry are quite a nice combination.
The shape is very unique and pleasing to the eye.

BC, first off hope all is well buddy! I really like this box you made. Great work. I love the top, especially the lid. I would have been torn on how to use the the lid being I like the bottom of the lid with the two colors on it. I’m a big fan of putting slines in. I’m in the process of teaching myself on making dove tails as splines.

Great work, and nice finish.
Be good buddy!

Looks great. One could do a lot worse than being inspired by John’s boxes. I’ll bet he likes this one.

Wilson, thanks for the mention as inspiration for this box. I really like this design and your execution and craftsmanship. The cherry and maple play well with each other, and your rendering of the side tapers is unique and eye catching. Good looking box, buddy.
