Walnut Box for Rhoda
This Walnut Box is made according to the Wife’s specifications. 14”X 81/2”x61/2” and it needed more than four sides.. We did agree on one thing – the grain of this piece didn’t leave room for any inlays on the case of the box….. The inlay on the lid is Peruvian Walnut with the name in Maple…I thought it really needed a tray or even two, but the specifications came into play at that point….The barrel hinges were a first for me…and it was a good thing that I tried them out first, because on the first box (a maple thing that will not be seen on this or any other site) one hinge was inset 1mm deeper than the other. I couldn’t believe how far off that lid was from fitting correctly. But then I’m here to learn. Barrel hinges and latch and knob hardware are from Lee Valley. Finish is several coats of rattle can, Deft Lacquer.
