Project Information

I made this to sit in the porch…look pretty and hide packages when delivered. I enjoyed this project, especially figuring out the latch mechanism. Finished with spar varnish: 3 coats on the top and 1 on box. Top: walnut and mahogany. Latch: Purple Heart, mahogany and walnut. Box: maple ply.

That should hopefully deter the porch pirates. Really nice looking addition!

It's that or tie a 160# Rottweiler to the porch, and give the delivery guys the biscuits.

Nice box.

Love that clasp. I have a toybox waiting in my shop for the grandparents to come pick it up, and I may have to add something like that to it…
