My niece is getting married to a Texan and a wedding keepsake box was requested. I resawed the stock from the last of my mesquite stash and built this. Dimensions: 15”x10”x5 1/2”. Box joints (pinned with 1/8” dowels and no glue), Shipwright wooden hinge, live edges on front, back, and hinges. Finished with 2 coats well rubbed BLO and 1 coat shellac.Pics show that BLO does NOT ‘muddy the grain’ as others have stated. Thanks for looking.
