17th Century Style Carved Oak Box
I started this carved oak box some time ago. The oak came from a tree that was taken down on the site of the museum that I used to volunteer at. It was all riven and worked into the box sides while it was still green. After it had dried a bit, the joinery was cut and the front panel was carved. I assembled the box sides during a volunteer day at the museum and then it got put aside.
I finally got around to finishing the box over the weekend. At this point, all it needs is a bit of final scraping in a couple spots and a good coat or three of oil. Then it will be listed for sale.
Is the top of this box just plain ie no carving? I would love to make one like this. I love your work by the way
Thank you! Yes, the top of the box is uncarved. In fact, on this particular box, only the front panel is carved.
