Yeah I really didn’t know what to call this, so I went with “soap box” because the lid reminds me of a bar of soap.
the dimensions are actually a bit small on this, the interior is just big enough to fit dollar bills (or twenties/fifties/hundreds, for those of you with real jobs and real salaries).
Main box is made from oak with Walnut splines, the lid is made of maple, walnut, and cherry, and uses an asymmetric design because I wanted to switch things up a bit. the inside bottom uses peel and stick felt, a recent addition to my woodworking arsenal thanks to fellow LJ Blackie.
On a side note- has anyone had success brushing on more than one coat of Lacquer? If so, what type of brush do you use? I used brushing Lacquer for the lid b/c I wanted something clear… the first coat went on smooth but after I brushed the second coat it looked so bad I actually sanded it back down to the bare wood and re-finished it with poly. ARGH!
Anyways thanks for looking. Comments, suggestions, advice welcome!
