Well, here is my first box. It’s no where near perfect, but it was a learning process for me.
I honestly don’t know what kinds of wood it is made out of, I got the pieces from an old box of scrap that my dad had, and none of it is labeled. I am a long way off from being able to identify wood by sight, so if anyone can tell me what they are, I would really appreciate it!
this has a medium walnut danish oil on it, I may put a nicer finish on it later, but for now I need to move on to other projects.
I made a mistake during glue up, so one corner on the top is a bit too high, and the lid doesn’t set flush (pic6), but it’s good enough for me right now. I learned quite a bit putting this together, and found some things to look out for in other projects. I was originally making it to sell, but since I made it crooked, I just decided to keep it, and after that, I just tried to finish it so I could move on to something I can sell :)
thanks for checking it out
there is a short video I posted to youtube, mostly for family and friends to look at, but if you are interested, here is the link -
