Monogrammed Cherry Box
I gave my husband a loose lid box I turned in my woodturning class and he took it to work and put it on his desk. One of his coworkers saw it and requested a stash box for her boyfriend’s Christmas pressie. She wanted kind of a cigar box look. I had never done box joints before and had a couple days left in the semester, so I said sure.
I got a nice piece of cherry from House of Hardwood and got to work. I had to fill in some gaps a bit with wood filler, but you can’t really see it.
I rabbeted the top on the table saw so it sits nicely in the box; not too tight, not too loose.
I finished it with 4 coats of Tung Oil. I hope the new owner enjoys it!
