Made this box for an upcoming live auction at a greyhound festival – all proceeds go to a rescue group that rehabs hounds coming off the track with broken legs. Not sure how much to set the opening bid at… any ideas?
Made of hard maple and walnut, it has a hinge pin lid, my first such lid. The inlays behind the box joints were a result of having to come up with a way to repair some serious blowout (due to my inattention – see this post). Greyhounds were cut from beech on a scroll saw, also a first on this tool. Finished with 6 coats of hand-rubbed poly and two coats of finishing wax.
