Sean's Shoe Shine Box...

author-gravatar Fiddy Aug 04, 2018

Wanted to make the box I saw the other week for my good friend, Ben, who's expecting his first child. They're having a boy and Ben has always been one to take extreme care and enjoyment out of the process of cleaning his shoes. Thought this could be a nice keepsake for the new addition once he's older. It was a great time building this. I'm still new to much of the hand tool work so it was also a nice learning experience. All in all I'm very pleased with the outcome. Lid was shaped with my no.4 and dovetails were hand cut with the help of David Barron's jig.

Fantastic work! I love the ambrosia maple/walnut combo. Dovetails look great, too! Thank you for sharing.
