I felt like making something a little different in a way of a box and had a certain person in mind who this box is for .
I was looking for a rustic look and think I got it close and he will like it .
Made from 1/2” cherry with dovetail splines which I accented, leather hinges and latch made from leather lace along with some horseshoe nails ,lined with beige upholstery cloth and finished with BLO and beeswax .
Size is 11 3/4 “X 7 1/4” X 4”
Had a good feeling building this box and made another box at the same time ,it is the same basic box but with a totally different look and I will post it soon as it is almost ready .
I like playing around with several projects at the same time because sometimes I need to step back and take a break from a project or wait for glue or finish to dry.
I get a lot of shop time lately because of the long winter we have had but spring is coming I hope soon .
