Latest Project Complete
I've just completed this box for storing knitting needles, it's amazing what uses there are for boxes!
It has a lift out tray and is lined with black leather.
It's made from quarter sawn English cherry and figured claro walnut. English cherry has a much milder colour to that of the American variety and doesn't darken down much with sunlight.
Bridle joints for the lid and dovetails for the sides, I never get tired of these joints.
Here's a shot of the book matched claro walnut panels and below hit with sunlight which brings out the redness to match the cherry nicely. A project on this box will appear in F&C magazine in due course.
