Sweet sixteen box for my assistant’s daughter. First box attempt. General plan was from a Doug Stowe book, then modified. Lots of imperfections. A few scratches on the walnut crotch that I didn’t realize until about 3rd coat of finish. Mortises for hinges were a little off, and a small gap on the front left side of the lid draws my attention everytime I look at it. A good learning experience with miters, dividers, miter keys.
Finish is 2 coats of BLO, 2 coats Maloof’s blend, and a few coats of minwax poly spray in a can.
Wood species. Walnut, Tiger maple, and soft maple for the dividers. Plywood bottom. Thanks for looking. I will now start posting a few of my other project to the site. I am an addict to look at other people’s projects, but need to start contributing to the site.
