This is my second attempt at a dovetailed box. Cherry and maple again. I really like this combo. This one has a hinged lid. I think I liked the sliding lid better. I have to do something to jazz up the next one. Maybe a cherry handle… The last two pics are unfinished. The first is while the BLO was drying and the second is sitting out in the sun trying to darken up the cherry a bit. The finish on this one is several coats of BLO and some wet sanding at 320 grit between coats. Then 4 coats of spray lacquer and wax.
