This is one from a little while back. I wanted to post this because it is a combination of pride and shame.
The box actually turned out really well in terms of overall quality.
The design is a flop.
I had all these ideas in my head. Instead of spreading them across a few projects, I put them all into this one. I was experimenting with inlay on the sides as well as the corners.
I took this upstairs and showed it to my wife. I could tell by her reaction that I was right about it being a flop. I mean, she said something nice, but only because she had to be nice. It’s a brute of a box.
It’s made of Cherry, padauk, walnut, macore, maple and probably a few other woods.
the lid probably weighs as much as the box bottom. Might be due to that big chunk of walnut and the 2 and half foot boards of cherry on top?
I may make another lid for this box and turn this lid into floating dock.
