Personal project – Bible Box for storing some Bibles that have been passed down from my paternal grandmother and great-grandmother. Solid cherry with solid frame and panel lid. Walnut splines and walnut feet, interior picture frame is also, you guessed it, walnut. Bottom is walnut plywood. Both the cherry and walnut were milled into lumber from logs given to me by various people.Finished with a seal coat of poly and then buffed out with orange oil and beeswax combo. The royal blue for the tassel was chosen for it’s consideration as a “heavenly” color – Numbers 15:38-40.

Rustic Carved White Oak Box
Very unique, rustic, reclaimed white oak box.
This box was ‘carved’ from a single piece of a white oak beam that I removed from a barn that was at least fifty years old. The section of the beam that this box comes from had the corners worn smooth from livestock rubbing against it over many years. The carving was done by hand-held router and carving bit. Voids in the inside bottom have been filled with epoxy and sanded smooth. A hand-forged handle completes the rustic look.

Red Oak and Walnut Box
The splines for the mitered corners of this box are made from Walnut. The splines in the back also serve as rails for removing the back of the box to reveal a hidden drawer that is released from the underside of the box. The oak for the body of the box was cut to allow the grain of the wood to flow around the front and sides of the box.
