Small beech and walnut box - a present for my physiotherapist

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.

Nice box! Really like the Walnut top. Well Done.
BTW, If you are going to show us pics of the wife you need to show more than just a finger.

Thanks for the nice comments. I delivered the box today; no comment as yet but I’ll let you know.

Ratchet – check out my bathroom cabinet project and then tell me you want to see more of the wife.

A very well constructed box and a good gift to the physio. Will be pleased to know the dimentions of the box.

I have spoken to Leanne and she loves the box. Apparently she’s been on holiday and didn’t get round to contacting me before. I’m glad that she likes it.
