Brass hardware came from Van Dykes

Finish is Walmart Rattle Can Lacquer. Several coats.

Not sure what to line it with … I have some hide on leather, but my wife thinks felt would be be best.

I like the embellishments Dan; i.e., the Banding, the large Splines, and the heavy Hardware…
With the thick walls, and all the features, it has a strong, bold look…
You have a style all your own Sir, Great Work as always!

Lovely box, heaps of personality. I think the hardware changes the scale a lot.

Thanks Guys. I enjoyed making this piece. This one went pretty quick. Call it a Saturday fun box.

Neat! The ribbons made me take a look. It reminds me a an old steam trunk.

I like the 1/4 sawn oak with kerfed edges, giving it a more rustic, almost medieval treasure chest look to it.

nice project, thanks for sharing!

Nice box, love the walnut trim. I love those hinges too, I just wish you could buy shorter screws for them to use with thinner wood.

Great job!
