My first box.
Nice learning exercise, got to build a jig to cut for the corner splines. I should have researched a bit since it ended up pretty disposable because it rides the fence and all adjustments have the blade chew a bigger hole.
I intended to have it hinged but the wife wanted a lift off top.
Danish oil finish.
Made from some scrap walnut given to me that I res-awed into the sides and bottom and a scrap bit of curly maple.
Had nothing to line it with so I did my best to finish the interior too.
I was working the lip down have the top sit flush but I stopped leaving the thin gap since I think it adds to the look and feel.
