I made this box for my grandma for Christmas this year. It was designed to hold eight place settings of silverware that she purchased one piece at a time with her babysitting money back in the early 1940s.
Sides are joined with a 1/4” box joint, and the lid slides out long-ways like a pencil box. The finger-pull for the top is a sort of stylized “H”. There is a very slight arch to the top of the box that doesn’t show up in the pictures, but looks and feels nice in person. The bottom of the box on the exterior and the interior is lined with green felt.
Size: 3” x 9” x 16”
Wood: Cherry lid, maple sides, poplar interior inserts, and plywood bottom
Finish: Waterlox original
