While working on a larger boxes I like to squeeze in smaller boxes whose designs constantly bounce around in my head. “Pinch Point” was one of those. I main idea of the design was to have a lift off lid that was turned and was held in place just by two points. I also wanted the lines to be very clean and blend in to themselves. I made one box with a Figured Asian Satin Wood lid and two with an East Indian Rosewood lid. The bodies are constructed from curly maple with handmade black walnut dowels. The legs are constructed of quartersawn black walnut.
“Pinch Point” is 5.375” x 3.5” x 5.625”. It was finished with three soakings of Danish oil followed by two buffings of BriWax. The lids were buffed out using a Beall Buffing System.
“Pinch Point” has really inspired a series of boxes for me using the main design aspect of a turned, lift off lid. So one design out and at least five new ones bouncing around in my head. Time to make more sawdust!
Just wanted to add that Allen at Milwaukee Woodworks was the provider of the beautiful piece of curly maple. Great guy to work with!
