So my previous meter box project that was made from scraps, inspired me to do a bit of a deep dive into making some more boxes. So this time around, I decided to pick up some better than plane old pine timbers such as mahogany, curly maple, purple heart, jatoba and some cherry wood. Walnut is also on the way!
This box is roughly 6 x 6 x 3 and a bit, inches. I didn’t exactly know what I was going to do with it when I first started onto it. It’s not completely finished at this point either. I still want to do some thin strip contrasting wood inlay work. My woodworking tools are a mix of old hand me down tools from my dad along with an assortment of stuff I picked up over the years for addressing basic tasks. Where I live now, it excludes the use of shop grade behemoth apparatus due to the noise and power consumption requirements. So I use almost exclusively, hand tools and like them to be as quiet as possible. I still have a few needums on that tool roster!
This box might end up being used for an electronics project box or perhaps as a parts box for any number of smaller items.
Any and all feedback on the box or ideas I may have yet to come up with, please chime in and communicate with a fellow traveler. 🙂
