This is the last of the four boxes that I built over the previous several weeks.
When I made my second glass ball coffee table I purchased some butternut to use for the legs and the lower shelf.
The remaining butternut had a knot hole in it and parts of it were a bit wormy. This portion was not suitable for the table, but could be used for some boxes. Rather than discard the portion of the board with the knot hole I used it for the top lift.
The box measure about 12” x 8” x 5.25”. It is trimmed walnut and finished with shellac, rubbed out with steel wool and then waxed.
