Thank you for taking a look at this recent project of mine. This is my version of a Japanese gift box. It measures just about 4” wide by 9” long by 2” high.
Made from scrap Pine using only traditional hand tools.
I wanted to keep this piece looking natural so I only used BLO to pop the grain a bit and some Pine shavings for inside decoration.
The joinery is a combination of Brad nails, wooden nails and glue. It is a really fun box to make and I thank Mads for bringing this fun idea to my attention about a year back.
Be well friends!
