Small Chest

Still enamored with box joints that I produce on my router jig, but thought I’d try something a little different by using the joints on an upper and lower wrapped frame. The lid panel wood came from the same pallet as the Acacia, so assume it is the same species only with a lot more character and color.

Pallet boards and flooring samples: Acacia, Cherry, Poplar, Walnut, Red Meranti, and Red Oak for the bottom boards.

Nice! I’m pretty enamored of them myself. That’s an awfully pretty chest.

I like it. Creative use of found/salvaged wood. It has a Japanese look. You could call it a “tansu”.

Great looking box! Like the use of reclaimed wood and the joinery is great. It will definitely last long.
