New box built.

My latest piece of woodwork, a box with hidden compartments.

It’s mainly American white oak with English yew bands and a bit of Sumach decoration. The pins are all walnut. It’s loosely based on a Japanese toolbox and old ammo boxes.

It’s made for Birk my grandson [who took the photo].

The varnish has specks of luminescent stuff that show up after dark.

The Yew was photoed in my last post and will make up the bulk of my next side table which I have started on, I just have to finish a new knife for my other grandson and then I’ll be free to concentrate on some proper furniture making.

Too hot to stay in the workshop this week, but hopefully I’ll get something done before Wimbledon….

We’ll see…

More later
