Mini-Trunk


Black Walnut and Quartersawn White Oak

December 2011


Just a little "mini-trunk" I built to practice making box joints.


Resawing a couple slices out of a nice piece of walnut I've had sitting around for a few years....

Trying out my new box joint jig on my router table....

Got the walnut sides joined to the quartersawn white oak ends...

Joints came out acceptable for my first attempt (more below)...

Complete box assembly...

Block sanding with some good Mexican brew...

Box stained up...

Hardware and handle installed...

Lift out tray in the top...

Satin liner "sub-countracted" to a friend....

 

Top tray stained....

A couple close ups...

Things I'm happy with:

Things I need to improve on:

All in all, another fun project that left my skills a tad improved.
