Once again, some projects for the show this weekend. The previous versions of these have been good sellers.
These are the same design as my previous boxes, only difference is I changed the finger joint shape a little (fully rounded all edges) and left out the tray.

EDIT I forgot to add that I did a short blog and provided a link to some dimensioned drawings here

Specs:

Interior is 6”x8”x2.75”, fumed white oak top frame and base, finished with danish oil and Homers.
The lid interiors are cherry, also fumed. Felt on the interior bottoms.

I have a lot of veneer scraps so the lids presented me with a place to dispose of them. A rather eclectic combination of woods/colors, but if you don’t try…..

Box 1

Purple heart box with a zebra wood lid. The lid splines are also PH.

Box 2

Canary box body with curly English sycamore lid. Canary splines.

Box 3

Patagonia rosewood with a cocobolo lid, cherry splines

Box 4

Jatoba body with a bubinga (not 100% sure) lid and cherry splines

Thanks for looking!

Thanks for the comments guys!

Pottz,
The pins are 1” x 1/8” round head copper rivets. They are actually all that hold the sides together.

I drill .128” (#30) holes a tad over 1” deep with the sides all clamped together and squared up.
A few notches on the sides of the rivets gives the epoxy something to bite into.

I use a syringe to apply the epoxy into the bottom of the holes with just enough to get a grip without squeezing out any excess.

Clamps are then reapplied to force the rivets down and hold everything together until the epoxy dries.

That is a nice design and wood combination .
You should do well at the show with these and I hope you price them properly as they look like top craftsmanship .

Thanks guys!

Kiefer, I’ll try for $90 each. People around here are rather cheap unless something is truly unique. The box I made before with the fractal burning was one that sold easily at a higher price.
