This is a box I started quite a while ago from maple scraps with walnut accents (also scrap).
I made the lid from birds eye maple veneer. It was one of my first times veneering-I used the iron on method.
I formed the lid lift on a bandsaw and hand sanded to finish. I used the router table method of mortising the hinges as shown on the fine woodworking video. Once the router table has been set up to properly I hate to take the bit out to do any other type of routing.
It is finished with multiple coats of shellac and hand rubbed with 0000 steel wool & paste wax.
I have given this box to a local charity for silent auction w/proceeds going to a local soup kitchen.
