I had never before made a “simple” box.
Turns out it isn’t so simple!
It is made of Cherry on the sides, and Black Walnut on the base and lid.
The handle is just a piece of cherry that I took over to my new scroll saw and freehand cut it without an idea of what I wanted beforehand. Honestly, I am very proud of it.
If you look very closely, you can see that there is a small bit of Purpleheart going around the inside bottom of the sides. This served two purposes; first to cover a cutting mistake, and second just because I thought it would look good.
The female friend I made it for LOVED it. She was my inspiration for making the box in the first place. She asked for the knotted wood. She loves the character it brings.
Please be kind, but I am open to suggestions. I really learned a LOT doing this first one and look forward to implementing those lessons during the next box.
Thanks for looking!
