I sure do love the way this box turned out. I posted a Blog Post on Building this box. It shows most of the steps and lots of pictures of it being built. Here’s the Address. Copy and Paste.
I posted many more pictures of this box on my Blog. Just Copy and Paste this address:
Walnut and Cherry sure do look good together. They both are strong stable woods that age well. A Beautiful Marriage Then the Walnut I chose to Bookmatch in the Front and Lid really does make this Box Unique. Good luck finding another like it or that can hold as many things or last as long. If you look at my blog post on how it’s built, you know it’ll last forever.
This box could proudly be displayed in any room in the Home or Office.
This Solid Wood Box is 14″ X 9 1/2″ X 11 1/2″.
2 Box Joint Drawers. The Top Drawer is a ‘False Front’. The drawers are made from Maple with a Cherry Drawer Front. The Maple has Tiger Striping in it. They both have a Removable Tray inside that can be slid to either side or used to divide the drawer. The Inside measurement of the drawers is 10 1/8″ X 7″ and 1 1/2″ deep.
Long enough to easily fit a legal size envelope. So it could be used as a Stationary Box.
The Top Section has a removable tray. The inside of the tray measures 4 3/8″ X 5 7/8″ X 3/4″. It can be easily slid to either side or removed. The Top Section measures 10 3/4″ http://mikesheirloomboxes.com/blog/?p=1758 6 3/8″ X 2″ below the tray or a total of 3 1/4″ of height. It also would easily hold a Legal Size Envelope.
The Walnut Bracket Feet sit under a Cherry Bead Molding.
I used a few coats of Kelly Moore’s Semi-Gloss Precatalyzed Clear Vinyl Lacquer on the outside and inside. I sand lightly with 220 grit between coats for a smooth finish. This is a VERY Long Lasting and Durable Finish!.
