I suppose this would be my first solo project, I made these my freshman year of highschool (2003) in woodshop. I still have no idea what sort of burl is on the largest box, the teacher had a friend that managed to get ahold of some really really good looking pieces of veneer for us to put on our boxes and that one was one of them.
I gave these to my mother and she has kept them safe and sound over the years. I know people on here would enjoy them so I decided to get some pictures for you guys.
The lid and bottom were traced via pattern, sanded to form and sealed with 3 coats of poly with progressively higher grit sandpaper and steel wool. The body of the box was boiled and bent over a jig until it held form and was tacked in place with copper nails.
If anyone can identify the type of wood used I’d appreciate it greatly, as silly as it sounds I’m not entirely sure what I used…
