I’ve seen some very nice sculpted boxes posted lately and wanted to try one.
It was a fun project, but more work then I expected.
I’ve seen many with the inset lid hinge-pined after construction, but I wanted to hide the pin. So, I trapped the 3/16 brass lid hinge pin in during glue up. This is a lot harder, trying to hold everything together: pined lid, biscuited miters, inset bottom and so on while trying to attach the clamps.
Kinda like an octopus setting up a beach chair !
Tons of sanding and it was ready for finish.
Three coats of Classic Oak stain and two of spray Polyurethane and it’s done.
It’s approximately 10”W x 5”D x 4.5”H
I don’t think “Greg the box sculptor” has any competition worries from me, lol, but it was fun.
Thanks for looking and have a great day.
