(for some reason, when I previewed this post, to enlarge the photos I have to click them twice. It’s worth it.)
I’m making some chairs next; and still have two of those for sale. https://pfollansbee.wordpress.com/ladderback-chairs-oak-boxes-for-sale/
CARVED BUTTERNUT BOX
The first one is made from butternut (Juglans cinerea) – a relative of walnut. This was a wide board that I cut apart to make quartersawn stock. I chose a strapwork pattern for the front and sides – I wanted to make the most of this fabulous wood for carving. Wooden hinges (the back board and the cleats under the lid are oak), a till inside. Pine bottom as usual.
H: 9 1/2″ W: 24 1/4″ D: 14 1/2″
$1,200 including shipping in US.
CARVED OAK BOX
white & red oak, white pine bottom.
H: 8 1/2″ W: 23 3/8″ D: 13″
$1,000 includes shipping in US.
This pattern is often found on 17th-century work – a surprising amount of detail in small spaces. (the bottom photo shows the detail well…)
Glued & pegged at the corners, bottom nailed on w handmade nails. Handmade hinges as well. A lidded till inside.
