This is a small treasure chest that could be used for jewelry, collectables, or even mail.
The box is made from African Mahogany and measures 16” wide, 5 3/4” deep, and 8 1/4” high. I used box joints with a curved coopered lid. The interior of the box is lined with red felt. The last photo shows the bevelled bottom which is made from pine. I utilized a piano hing for the lid.
I used Cabot cherry oil stain, and sealed it with two coats of orange shellac.
