    Finger jointed decorative cedar box

    Here's that man again,

    Still sitting on a rapidly shrinking pile of salvaged cedar boards, constantly trying to think of things to make with the stuff.

    A finger-jointed decorative box, 14x8x8 inches, with a glued-up scrap/quilt lid panel. Cedar planed to 5/8" thick, 1/4" finger joints cut, the whole thing stained with a dark Chestnut gel-stain, that might be just a leeeetle TOO dark. *Shrug*

    The pictures:













    This one goes for the Family free-for-all Christmas present exchange.

    Thanks for looking!

    Your box and its finish are much like some very old pieces I have from New England.

    Enjoy,

    If it's anything like Darren's family present exchange, I'm sure it will go fast and furious.

    Who doesn't like a nice box?

    Which reminds me, my inventory is getting low, cause I've been giving them away. Time to fire up the box factory!

    I like it, I think it'll age well and continue to look good over time.

    Nicely done. I thought I had scored when I snagged a batch of ceder fence boards from a neighbor. Every time I try to work the stuff en mass I get respiratory trouble, DC respirator and all. They just set there looking at me.

    That's a good looking box, Kevin! It's got a lot of character and I'm sure someone will be proud to receive it!!!
