I had a small bit of unusual colored pecan and some small walnut pieces so glued them up and made my second EZ mitre box. Spalted white oak handle was a cut of from the feet on another box. These are not the best pics I have ever taken and they make the Shipwright hinge look huge. It is only 3/8” thick. Dimensions: 12×7x4 1/2”. Walnut ‘lipping’. Finish is shellac and wax. The coolest thing about this box is it is nearly airtight. I’m thinking about running the grain in the other direction in my next EZ Mitre box so I can wrap the grain across the top and down the front and back.
