After a long pause, I went back in the shop and started these Christmas Boxes. They are a simpler form of the “Palm Boxes” that Andy started. The woods are: Walnut, Birdseye maple, Merbau, Eucalyptus, Curly Maple, English Sycamore, Black Palm, White Oak, Cherry, Polar, & Leopardwood. Chain stays were added to prevent the pinned hinges from cracking from over-rotation. The construction was butt jointed and dowel pinned. Grits 50-800 were used, 4 coats of clear poly were hand wet-sanded. 16 Boxes, 2 bird feeders, 1 Gnome door.

(There is a Tavern Gnome door in the mix & “Apple” apple bird feeders, that I made for a really close family members.) Which I’ll post again separately.
