Pell box for grandson

My Friend Rich Pell asked for something for his grandson.  He showed me a board with tee-cup hooks for his keys.

Well after I came down from that rant. (does he know what I do?)  I showed his wife a box I made for another friend.  That got her on bard with something nicer. 

This one is dark and masculine.  Walnut end grain lid, sapele sides, curley maple "indexer" for the lid. Brusso hinges 101's I think.

Finish GF wipe on gel satin.  I like it because it still feels like wood after the finish.


Nice Petey, love the top panel.

Nice looking box. Sapele has a great look when some oil is put on it.
Gorgeous timber, beautiful keepsake box.
