Cherry ‘n Brass....Five years ago, a good friend had the misfortune to have is townhome flooded, and he let me salvage some of the cherry woodwork. After the cleanup, he asked me to make boxes for all those who had helped; a total of 13. One guy got missed, and this is the final “thank you” box. He owns a small cabin cruiser named “Wild Oats”, so my friend thought it would be a nice touch to have the box laser engraved with this logo.
I tried something new with this one….I added brass tubing in place of the usual corner splines…give it a bit of nautical flavor. I drilled through the corner, inserted 5/32 inch brass tubimg and filled the hole with matching wood filler. The brass ovals almost look like little portholes.
The box is about 5×8, finished with hand-rubbed poly, has a lid hinged with hidden pins, and it is lined with black velvet.
