Walnut Box

This is the second of three boxes that I am making for Christmas. While on the internet I came across a small winery in California with the same surname as mine. I ordered some of thier wine (its very good) as Christmas gifts for my father and two brothers and decided to make some boxes for the wine. This one is made from nicely figured walnut. It is about 13.5×8.5×6 inches. It has box joints and wooden hinges. (I made a mistake when mounting the hinges mismatching the halves.)

I don’t comment that much on projects anymore unless something really stands out as exceptional. This one does.

Very well done.

Thanks for sharing.

The box has a vintage age look to it, and the wood grain is wonderful. Thanks for posting…BC

Thanks everyone. I had never made a box before but had seen so many great boxes made by LJers that I had to try one or two myself. I have pruchased some roughsawn walnut for one of my future projects (Maloof style rocker) and the end of one board had this tremendous grain. It had some knot holes in it so it could not be used for the rocker. I had seen so many figured boxes on LJs that I decided to use that end for this box. I was able to resaw about four 3/8 inch thick pieces from that piece of walnut and got lucky with such a nicely grained wood.

It is a beautiful box. Is that a latch on the front and if so then how does it work?

Ampeater – thanks for your comments. The “latch” on the front is purely decorative and just serves as the handle to open up the lid. It madefrom two little bookmatched scraps of walnut an the shape was piked based on the shape pf the grain when put together.
