My neighbor was kind enough to give me a huge chunk of walnut from his uncle’s farm. I tried to return the favor and made this box for his wife. The top cap and splines were made out of maple scraps. The bottom of the box & tray are aromatic cedar.
I cut & planed the rabbitts for the sliding tray by hand…not a big deal for most of the woodworkers on this site but a first for me. I pinned the joints w/ 1/8” dowels.
I finished w/5 coats of shellac & rubbed out with 0000 steel wool and clear paste wax.
Thanks for looking.
