I made this box for my wife. It’s made of white oak with an antique gel stain and high gloss poly. I made some half blind heart style joinery for the front and back. Inside the box, I covered it in textured bright red felt. This box measures 5 1/2” tall by 8” deep, 8” wide.
I learned a lot when I made this box. I don’t normally do boxes with specialty joinery. It was trying at first, but then became easier as I progressed.
It’s also the first box I made where I used felt for the inside. I had spray glue all over the table, the project, my hands, and my left knee. Don’t ask how that happened, I couldn’t tell you (I was blinded by the glue… lol). I enjoyed the process, though.
