I built this box just to kill time in the shop. There was no one in mind and no real plan going in. It’s red oak with a walnut handle. The dovetails are hand cut and so are the grooves for the bottom and the groove on the lid that the walnut handle fits into. All the stock was dimensioned by hand except cutting to rough lengths. (I don’t have a crosscut hand saw yet) The bottom is real velvet inside and out. The finish is multiple coats of BLO and a reddish brown paste wax. The inside has no finish at all.
