This was my first (successful) attempt at finger joints. I think it turned out pretty well, i made the joints stick out a little bit for extra affect. This is completely made out of pallet wood scrounged up from work. I had fun just pulling this one together. I think the cherry and pine go well together accenting the walnut nicely. The lid handle is made from maple with a walnut accent button in the middle. The bottom is held together with maple pieces and has little maple feet as well.
I put a few coats of boiled linseed oil on the box and then put a few coats of clear shellac on over that.
The box is currently for sale on my Etsy Shop. Thanks for looking and God bless!
