Project Information

This box was made for the local Children's Hospital. We are hosting a golf outing, dinner etc, and this box will be one of the prizes.

The box is made of babinga (sides) walnut (top) with curly maple accents. The bottom is Spanish cedar. The lid is indexed with the maple witch gives it a nice tight close.

I used Brusso hinges.

The box is approximately 10" long, 8" wide and about 6" deep. The feet raise the box off the ground by 1/4" inch. I think that gives it a little lift.

Thanks for looking

Making boxes and failing, is more enjoyable that trying golf.
