Here is yet another venture into my box making and having a blast, this is from a batch of wood that I just recently came across, my dad’s next door neighbor had this tree (Texas Cedar Elm) on his property that had been dead standing for a good two years and he just brought it down a few months ago, I was fortunate to come across this find more so that I didn’t have to use my chainsaw it was already portioned for me, I’ve had it stickered for a good while and tested it at 15% before bringing it into my shop in which I let it sit for about a week for adjustment, I optioned for a live edge lid along with custom made wooden hinges to compliment the live edge also making them to look the part, The box joints are 1/2” another trial, I wanted to see what they looked like. This box measures 12” x 7 1/2” x 5”, it’s finished in a single coat of tung oil, two coats of wipe on poly and a final coat of paste wax.
Thanks for looking and comments are always enjoyed.
