this is a box that i have done and ive tried to incorporate some of the new things ive learned about boxes and box making, thanks to the help of roger bean, ive got a long way to go, but i think i was successful with some things, so having said that this box is made of antique southern yellow heart pine and walnut and some padauk and a tiny bit of maple, the top is made with walnut, the center panel is 1/4 thick and glued to a panel of pine that you see when you open the box, i also did a shadow line of black epoxy around the center panel of walnut. the box itself is made of the heart pine and joined by datto’s. the hinges are on the side and pinned to the box with a thin brass rod, i finished the box with BLO and some tung oil, i tried something different, i took some 000 STEEL WOOL and put it on my sander and ran it over and over the top with the BLO AND TUNG OIL, and it made the top so nice and smooth, and cleaned up some of the small scratches, the bottom of the box is covered with black velvet, i attached the velvet to some picture frame matting, i used a spray adhesive and im pretty happy with how it all turned out..thanks for looking and giving your comments. SIDE NOTE TO SELF- this box was made for darrin.
