Ok, so here is my first completed, somewhat picture worthy project. I was looking for a small project that gave me the basics of using a bandsaw, sander, drill press, etc. The inspiration came from member FrankLad who posted a fantastic box with much more character and finesse back in October of 2009. I loved the wooden hinge style and decided it would be a pretty simple starter project.
I made it from red oak scrap and used birch dowels for the hinge. Put 1/8” by 1/2” magnets at the front and let the top magnet peek through the lid for a decorative touch. Lined the hole with black felt and called it complete. Cost me 10 bucks worth of supplies. Finished it with only danish oil and haven’t made up my mind as to whether to give it a poly or laquer finish yet… Any comments, suggestions, or criticisms are openly welcome. Thanks for takin a look!
