Way back in the day, months and months ago. I made this box as part of my ‘shoot-from-the-hip’ series of 2011. As the name implies, there was no planning. I just started putting wood together. While this box is one of my favorites, this technique did and does not always yield such results. Soon I will post a couple of those projects that I am not so happy with.
Anyway, I did a bunch of boxes with sliding lids. I wanted to try something different for this box as it is bigger than it’s predecessors and a HUGE sliding lid would just be too much. I wanted a split lid without a gaudy line at the divisor point. So, I took a piece of padauk (yes, more padauk) and put this…feature over the split.
this box is made of bubinga, cherry and padauk. There’s also a little walnut int here. The box measures ~12”x5” at 3.5” tall.
