When I finished my second box , I gave it to a friend. Her daughter saw it and said she wanted a special box for herself. That was several months ago, and she has continually bothered me asking for “the box I promised”.
I finally got around to making her one, but it wasn’t very “special”. So I decided that since I still had not decided if it needed a handle for the lid, and I also had not used my scroll saw in about a year, I would try something new.
I like the way it turned out. I used the router table to make all of the cuts, using the technique that I have seen here (think it was called “mitre box”?). This was my first box using that technique, so I am happy with how it turned out. I will definitely use this technique again!
The wood is Osage Orange, Purpleheart, Spalted Maple, Padauk, and Walnut. It is finished with 3 coats of wipe-on Poly, with a stepped sanding between each coat.
Thanks for looking!
