This little box was a previous post that I over-engineered to a fail. The top had been assembled with splines between sections, which caused the glued-up sections to crack. I redid the top with butt joints, reshaped and hinged it to the box, then refinished the exterior with Target Coatings waterborne lacquer.
I added a tray, carrying the arch from the box to create feet. Pegs are Miller mini-dowels. Box and tray lined with moire patterned silk.
Now I can finally ship this baby off to the remarkable young woman who’s good turn so many years ago has made the difference in every day since then. Thanks Lucinda, I’m still here and the thanks are partially due to you.
