    Default Black Walnut box

    Another black walnut box for a friend's birthday. I'm always looking for timber with blemishes because I like to incorporate the blemishes into the finished piece. As soon as I saw the wormhole appear as I was planing the wood, I knew it would be the box front.

    Hand cut dovetails, suede lining, Gaboon ebony lift, Brusso hinges, and an oil and wax finish. Box measures 317 x 171 x 95.

    When all is said and done, there is usually a whole lot more said than done.

    Yes, they are my first port of call as well.
    Mal is retiring in the near future but Greg will still run the timber side.
    I am a regular with the Hastings Woodworkers Guild and we meet at the Wauchope Men's Shed now.
    If you are ever down on a Friday, let me know and I'll take you over.
    Cheers

    The hand cut dovetails look great. A very nice box that will be a keepsake.
    And my head I'd be a scratchin'
    While my thoughts were busy hatchin'
    If I only had a brain.
