author-gravatar Lancaster_pouch Oct 01, 2020

Just delivered this custom cherry box last week.

Some Details:

  • Original design
  • It has through dovetail construction for the main box and a mitered frame and panel lid, done by hand
  • A raised panel on the bottom for added weight and balance
  • Black walnut dividers with carved texture and various angles for visual interest
  • A beautiful hunk of cherry burl for the panel in the lid, raised on both sides
  • Brusso Hardware and pull tab
  • Custom solid brass chain stop
  • Various scalloped carving details to break up flat plane transitions

Thanks! I have a bunch of process pics, but the originals are gone. The only ones I have are stuck in IG. I would've posted those as well
