Spent a couple hours starting to slab the smaller ash log, tried out the Lie Nielsen Low Angle Jack Plane, and squared up the posts for JR’s bed.

Walnut Box by Earl
It was the first box I have ever built. The walnut used originated from my great grandfather’s farm and was milled down by my grandfather almost 20 years ago. This project surely tested my abilities and patience. I used purpleheart and African blackwood as the miter spines (what a challenge!). I used rare earth magnets (one hidden in the lid) to keep the box secure. I made a lot of mistakes on this box, but was able to work around them or change my plans along the way. The untrained eye can’t see the defects. I guess that’s what we shoot for. I gave this box to my parents for Christmas as a “Legacy Box” to put their wills and valuable papers in.
