I designed and built this box for friend and fellow Lumber Jock Meilie http://lumberjocks.com/mmh as a thank you for coming to my aide with a custom cane to get me through some hip surgery. I will put a bit more about that in my blog “boxes and canes” in an upcoming post.
This box was an experiment on a couple of levels and I’m pleased with the results. Quilted maple front, back and lid with rock maple sides/legs. I textured the sides with a palm router. Pictures 3, 4 & 5 show a few steps during the build process.
High gloss lacquer and the red/black quilt give the piece an Asian flair.
