This is the first box I’ve made, other than storage boxes for tools. This is another one of those things you do when you do this professionally. I made this for one of my furniture customers. She has an antique thimble collection, and wanted a case to display them in. I think I’ve made full size furniture in less time than this took. I guess you box makers must have a system that I don’t know about yet.
The box is made of cherry. The case dovetails were machine cut, but the ones in the drawer I had to do by hand. It has a oil/varnish/wax finish. Measures about 18w x 10”d x 6-8”t. It has spaces for 48 thimbles and the drawer is for the history index.
