A beech and walnut small box built as a thank you present for my physiotherapist without whom my elbow would remain in a state. Finish is one coat of danish oil followed by three of satin varnish.
I’m quite pleased with the way that the dove tails have turned out on this one. The cut away base also seems to have worked well. The finish is nothing special – maybe the satin varnish didn’t like going over the danish oil – but I think that I like the slightly vernacular look – it isn’t supposed to be Chippendale.
Thanks to the wife for holding the box’s lid to show the box interior and lid underside.
I hope that you all enjoy. I’ll report back what my physio thinks of her present.
