My daughter celebrated her birthday yesterday. I made this little loose-lidded Keep Sake box out of Claro Walnut and Western Maple. I used my new box-joint sled I had just completed building from the plans in ‘Shop Notes’ volume 62.
In preparation of the finish, I sanded all of the wood down to 320 grit, than used the Beall Three Step waxing system. It took a bit over 3 hours to complete. The box is about 6” x 8” x 3.5”. The Maple was run to 0.524” and the Claro Walnut was run down to 0.658”.
