My first woodworking creation...a sewing box
For my first ever woodworking project…
A cantilevered sewing box for my wife. The boxes and carry handle are ash, the rest is cherry. The corners are mitered with cherry dovetail keys. The lids are removable and double as pin cushions. Each top tray holds 40 spools of thread. The other trays are undivided. The wife is going to line them with a printed burlap fabric. Overall dimensions are 21"L, 15"H, 11"D. It’s 30" wide when fully opened. The finish is 1 coat of Minwax “Natural” stain, 3 coats of shellac, and 2 coats of carnauba wax.
