This was the prototype box for the treasure wedding box I built for my son.

Resawn and book matched cherry

Mitered corners (Which had to be repaired a few times.)
Simple brass hinges for the Blue BORG store.
Finish is 1 coat of 50/50 mineral spirits and BLO,
4 coats of shellac sanded to 320 between coats
Buffed on my triple buff and finishing wax buffed out.

Well you certainly have mastered the art of the box, nice job! BTW, your 10ER is showing ;-)

I wouldn’t say mastered. There are plenty of flaws and rookie mistakes on this box. But Thanks.

It’s a 1955 Mark V BTW not a 10 ER. But thanks for noticing.

Here are the before and after photos

It’s lovely, Terry. That cherry will darken and take on a whole new look in a few years. Great box.
