Project Information

This little box is a custom order.......The client wanted a momento to give to a friend who had just lost her husband. He had been an avid fisherman….hence the Polynesian fish hook on the lid.
The box is solid walnut, about 4.5×6.5 inches, with a dadoed in bottom, The lid is hinged with hidden pins that pass through the sides. The corners feature walnut splines. I carved the fish hook from walnut and created a lift by dadoing in a strip of walnut across the lid. The finish is Minwax semi-gloss poly, sanded to 320 between coats. The interior is lined with gold suede.
