Drawing to a Close

I’m in the home stretch with the oak box. The till now has a lid, and the carcass is squared and nailed together.

I decided to add a bit of carving to the till lid, too. This was a good workout for my newly acquired 6 mm #3 gouge.

The bottom was attached with wrought iron nails. I resawed some oak to make 1/2-inch thick hinge cleats. All that is needed at this point is to cut and attach the top. I guess when you get right down to it, aside from the carving, and regardless of size, a box is a box, is a box. They all go together in the exact same way!
