This is my third attempt at a sliding top Japanese inspired box, the first in hardwood. I tried to make the lid less toolbox looking by trying to be a little creative with the sliding stops and using a couple driftwood tree branches I picked up on a road trip this past summer to Oregon. This was done with hand tools except for a drill used for the dowels holding up the branches, although I got enough tear out that I’m thinking of finding a vintage hand drill for next time. It’s finished with BLO and amber Shellac and a coat of wax. It was my first experience with a finishing oil and I really liked the effect on the grain.
To hold up the top in the open position I was inspired by a lid holder @mafe made for his toolbox.
