    Curved-Lid Tool Box

    Lots of Freud Box joints.It was a good Shop Notes project.
    It call for Ponderosa Pine I made it out of good old Michigan white Pine.
    I had a problem with a fixture Shop Short Cuts,I had out the old trig book,and I took care of the problem in short time.
    Finish was 3 coats of Zinsser bulls eye shellac amber,and 3 coats of wipe-on Poly Clear Satin.
    I think if I make another one it would Walnut or Cherry.
    I had fun making the box, Thanks for looking.

    Hi Gayl,

    That looks great! I saw that project and thought - wow, way too complex for me!
    Nice job!

    Nice!

    Are the curved fron pieces flat staves that are then shaped with planes and spolkeshaves?

    I've done a cuouple curved tops, but never with finger-jointed ends. Those are neat!
