I continue to be amazed at how box building can be such a skill challenge. In my case I seem to improve on some things and possibly regress on others. This box is made from radiatta pine. Size is 12” x 8” x 7”h. The lid is hinged on a 3/16” brass pin concealed under flat grain tapered plugs. The lift out tray is made from 1/4” thick material milled from the same board. The box bottom is 1/4” pine ply, and the tray bottom is 1/8” Baltic birch ply. The tray and box bottoms are lined with black felt. The finish is stain, three coats of brush-on shellac, then paste wax. This one doesn’t have a home yet, but with all the kids and grandkids coming for Thanksgiving, maybe someone will take it home.
Thanks for looking!
