This lil ditty is a commissioned box that I made for a guy who goes to my church. He collects money clips and wanted to know if I could make him a box that had multiple lift-out trays so he could stow them away for none to see. I obliged and this is what I came up with: this concoction of box awesomeness! Instead of making a simple box with lift-out trays, I decided to go the multiple-box-glued-together-with-sliding-drawer-trays route. I like this better. Woods used are: walnut, white pine, maple, cherry, alder, red oak, poplar, blue pine (beetle-kill), mahogany, teak and I guess that’s about it. I used found hardware for the knobs. Yeah, I actually found them on the side of the road connected to a lost drawer. All materials are recycled/reused. Ok, the shellac was not recycled nor was the glue. This was my first time using shellac on a project and I think I am still on the fence about it. Hmmmm.
I have also made a pie box for said man’s wife. That project is soon to find it’s way onto lumberjocks via photorealistic representation.
I thank you for gazing at my box.
