« Part 34: Cat Can Corral Part 35 of Small Projects series Part 36: Caliper Storage box »

SWMBO ask for place to keep monies flat and orderly ahead of bank day. Had a chunk of purpleheart kicking around and made this box.

Purpleheart cash keeper

The box is 1/4” stock except for the weight which is full 15/16”. The full width stock was sanded to make the finger curve so both sides would be exact copies after resawing. I have about a 5/32” thick center cut with an odd semicircle cutout.

The half moon grip was cut from a piece of scrap mahogany using my plastic protractor as a radius. It was easily cut with the band saw, sanded, and rub joint glued in place. I think the mahogany goes well with the purpleheart.

Once the box was completed all of the edges were beveled with a pass or three of the 5” ROS.

1/16” hand bevel
