This Christmas I was wrapping my wife’s gift in a plain store provided box. When I got the idea of making a box to put the gift inside. Sort of two gifts in one. I started the project at 16:00 on Christmas eve and finished at 02:30 Christmas day. I figured out way back if you are going to make one box you might as well make enough parts for four. The images are from the 3 boxes made from the extra parts. She already took hers to work before I could get any images.
Box 1: Santos Rosewood body, Madrona Burl center and Alder accent.
Box 2: Mozambique body, Olive ash burl center and Bloodwood accent.
Box 3: Bubinga body and Ash Burl center.
All boxes are 6.5×9.5 and 3 to 4 inches tall. 1/2” BB plywood substrate and Titebond II as adhesive for the exotic veneers. Sanded to 220 grit. One pass of Watco Danish oil ‘Natural’ and a dual coat of Deft Satin lacquer.
