Sculpted Pine Keepsake Box

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!

Both of these boxes are up to your standards. You certainly make that pine special with your carving skill.
