My first commision and attemp with using 8 sided router bit for the setup of this box. Box is 16.5” in length with 10-5” wide with having a height of 8”. The box is mostly walnut with birch panels the top panel is veneered with walnut. Each corner section is made with Mahogany and Ambroisia maple each kept straight.

Hope to present this to one of our ministers at end of the month.

I used a stop chain from Rockler for the older brass hinges I used for the lid.

Your box looks great. Your craftsmanship shows in the design, construction, and finish. I would like to know how you went about setting up the 8 sided joints? Looks complicated. Thanks for inspiring

Joe,
You can find David Henry 8 Sided tutorials on youtube and also on lumberjocks which helped me in getting this one through the gate. Lot of testing on the router to get me stave boards correct once on the corners.
