This latest box is one of my favorites. I sawed the Black Cherry from a log my best friend gave me, the maple burl was a gift from Robert Triplett, Von Hagan taught me the raised panel on the tablesaw technique, BlackCherry taught me the finishing technique, and Shipwright taught me to make these cool hinges. So this is truly a LJ collaborative effort!
Dimensions: 14×8 x 4”. Finish is rubbed on shellac. Shipwright wooden hinges that are just under 1/4” thick. Chamfering the edges of these hinges makes them cleaner and less bulky looking to my eye. I also changed the sequence of build on these hinges and they went a LOT quicker.
