Well, this box started life as one of my usual boxes. As I was putting finishing touches on the top, I manged to expose the hinge pin by sanding too much. It sat in my junk pile for a few months as a reminder to practice patience when it comes woodworking. The other day I was browsing through my growing list of my favorite picks on Lumberjocks, and I came across a design from Robw. So this is how I rescued the box with a little help from the above and a lot of help from Robw and Lumber jocks. Thanks ROBW.
Dim: 12.5×8.5×3.75 high
Finish: Shellac
Material: maple and walnut
