This is my version of Peter Turners box, you have seen in various publications. I chose to use Alder and Popular as my choice of woods. It started out to be a Toy Box for my nephew. I felt the end result was to nice for a catch all to place toys in. It ended up being called a Keep Sake Box for his baby items, as he has grows up. It is my first attempt in building a box of sorts. Lots of time, lots of learning. The finish is Watco Danish Natural Oil, three coats, letting it set one month between each coat, and 8 coats of hand rubbed Minwax Wipe-on Poly. The hindges are a Lid-Stay Torsion Hinge from ROCKLER Woodworking. I used Earth Magnets to keep lid closed tight. There are a total of 167 Mortis and Tenon joints.
I look forward to building another box, in the near future. Thanks for looking….BigD1
