Every so often a quickie is good…so today I decided to have a quickie and make a simple sculpted box … similar in design to one of the boxes I created several years ago for one of my earlier project posts.
The light sculpting around the four sides of the box didn’t take long…I guess a lot of practice makes it go quickier.
The Cumaru was left over from some boards I bought years ago for building a porch. I also have used some of it for my workbench legs and apron…one heavy and dense wood to put it mildly.
After gluing the box together I realized that the piece I needed for the top was not wide enough …so I added an accent piece of maple since I had a bunch of it already cut.
The bottom is lined with ostrich leather and the finish is lacquer.
