My (crafter) wife needed a box in which to store buttons.
Ah. I can DO that, thought I !
So … here we be.
Book matched Walnut base and lid. Lid is rabbeted to fit snugly on the box. Red Oak sides and ends.
Yeah. While I was loading the pictures … was the first time (weak-eyed me) that I could see the remnants of glue squeeze out, in a couple of places. Eek !
I need better light, for my assembly table, AND to begin using painter’s tape on my glue joints. The flash of the camera REALLY reveals it. It’s barely visible in normal room lighting, but … tisk-tisk !
Finish: Watco Natural Danish oil for the Oak; Watco Dark Walnut Oil for the Walnut. Wet sanded to 2400 grit, then covered with home-brew beeswax/mineral oil mixture.
Joinery: simple mitered corners, but … to make up for the glue issues … I nailed those miters ;-)
Thanks for stopping by !
