Boy’s box for treasures. 11×8 x 5.5” Urban forested cherry and walnut. Tried the copper roofing nails as hinge pins. Looks good against the walnut sides.
Dewaxed shellac sanding sealer, EM6000 waterborne lacquer, wax.
Woodburning by my spouse, Pamela Bordner.

I didn’t stick the reveal on this one, but once I handed it off for the artwork I didn’t want to risk messing anything up about the lid.

Nice, but no Lock? How’s he going to keep his stash safe:)

Nice little build, but yes it needs a lock.

I know what I did with my lock box in the ‘70s. That’s exactly why there’s no lock. Not much vapor protection for the same reasons. :D

I’ve used 3mm shelf pins with no through hole, so you see nothing from the outside, but this is pretty easy with a properly tall board or two bracing the lid from the inside. I used shipping tape to keep everything stable, tapped a starting hole for the bradpoint bit and drill press and held my tongue just right. Copper roofing nails are cheap!
