A small walnut box. Brusso stop hinges and a German lock. This board started out as a piece of crown molding I purchased for 50 cents a foot, I have been experimenting with a new finishing technique. The pore filler is hard to obtain mineral. Finished with garnet shellac. I can’t really call it a hand tool project because I started with a factory milled board. All the pretty curves were done for me. I did use just hand tools for the rest of it though.

Awesome save of some Crown. I like that you saw this in a stick of molding.

Nice job, thanks for posting.

Nice work on the Crown moulding Box.
It is a interesting meduim to use as it can be set for many different effects.

I made a few many years ago, using plain cove moulding, not quite as nice as your effort though.
Here is one using the moulding in different aspects
