My neice is a cat lover so I made her this box. 9 lives, 9 sides. It’s made from cherry. Dimensions are 2 1/2” high and about 5 1/2” across. It has your basic rabbeted, lift off lid with some facets for visual interest. Finish is BLO with several coats of Deft rattlecan lacquer.
The piece of lumber I was working with wasn’t wide enough for the lid so I resawed a piece and glued it up as a bookmatched panel. Even though it was from the same section of the same board the two sides didn’t take the BLO evenly so there’s a color difference between them, but there’s no blotching so I figure I at least broke even…
