Project Information

This small keepsake box was cut from a chunk of African padauc I bought at our local Woodcraft store. The chunk was originally a turning blank for a bowl, but I went at it with the bandsaw to get the pieces you see in picture 3. The legs are Ash wood stained with a gun-stock orange stain to better blend with the padauc. The lid handle and underside centering pieces (those are shown in picture 6) are the bead my father had cut off an old tongue and groove board to use on another project and had scrapped them. I dug them out to use for this box and, since I'm not sure what wood they are, (hangs head) I decided to stain them with the same gun-stock orange stain. Originally I was going to put a rear hinge on the lid then realized that would have made it look like a toilet seat lid ….so yeah…scrapped that idea. :)
