A keepsake box for my sister-in-law for Christmas. Made of the same mahogany I used with my first box. Also, black walnut lid with cherry legs. 4” tall, 5 1/2” deep, 10” wide. Walnut pegs are not just decoration. I realized too late that the sides were too thin for biscuits, so I had to turn the pegs. Hinge is 1/16” brass rod.
I love the knots in the mahogany.
Finish is several coats of sprayed on clear glossy lacquer.
