Beautiful box John. Those feet must of been a pain to make. I like how the joinery is carried through to the top. How did you make it so seamless? Did you saw it off afterwards?

John,

I do love boxes and love them even more after seeing yours. Excellent craftsmanship that really shows the beauty of the wood.

Nice job and thanks for taking the time to share it with us.

the box was glued together & then i cut the lid apart using a 1/4" router bit, & using 1/4" square dowle in the routed side kept in place with masking tape , I cut around the box sides, to finish off I sanded each cut surface to make each surface smooth, as for the feet, I started with material 3/4" squaed & routed the inside rabbit & then shaped the outsides using my scrollsaw & sanding did the rest

Beautiful box John. I like to combine the scroll saw with my router work too.
