Daughter #1’s birthday is soon and I thought I would make her a box.
It is similar to my first effort with a different colour scheme.
The lid is made from offcuts around the workshop and the veneer was a really nice find, I set this piece into the lid (rather than flush) this time for a bit more of a 3D effect. The tray is Silkwood which is lined with some R. M. Williams leather and the box is Jarrah. The majority of it was done by hand including the mitres which were done with a hand plane on a shooting board.
It is finished with Scandinavian Oil and I intend to give it a burnish with some beeswax before giving it to her.
It is great to be able to spend time doing these things for family and friends, I am indeed a fortunate man.
Kind regards, David
