Again, another mini box just to up the stock for an upcoming show… nothing fancy here. Simple dovetails join the main box, the top is held in place by a rabbet cut on all sides.

Oak with a walnut handle, flocked with green suede-tex. finished with 3 coats of polyurethane

Another nice one,

Flocking, that’s one thing I’m getting away from, I can’t get past the glue fumes, they tare me up.

Randy- I hear you on that. I have another piece I’m working on and would like to put an insert on the bottom to cover a small hole in the wood. any suggestions? I was thinking a piece of leather or cork

Nice, clean box with attractive dovetails—well done. Personally, I like suede linings. Greg The Cajun Box Sculptor uses alligator which really adds a touch of class. Just a couple of ideas.

I’m sure that you will sell some of these. It’s a nice little box.

Tooch, if it’s a square bottom, take cereal box cardboard, pick up some felt from a local fabric or craft store, cut the cardboard to fit the inside of the box allowing clearance for the felt, then cut the felt to wrap around the card board, using scotch tape tape the felt on the bottom side to the cardboard and you’re done, only thing is, you will only be covering the bottom and not the sidewalls, myself I only cover the bottoms.

I just yesterday purchased some peel and stick felt, it has a back that peels off and you stick it to the wood, sold at Hobby Lobby. I’m going to give that a try on my rounded corner applications, it would also be idea for the bottom of the boxes as feet to protect from scratching furniture, another thing I sometimes use for box bottom cushions are cabinet door stick on bumpers, they are of a rubber substance and make the box stick solid no slipping along with protection.

When I need to close a hole that’s going to be visible, I use epoxy.

Thanks for all the comments guys, and thanks for the tips Randy. I may try the cardboard/felt idea.

John C being in Pennsylvania, I don’t know where I’d get alligator skin… but maybe a Buck skin would be cool?! only problem would be the hair getting damp might ruin it…
