Cherry Box

Finally found a use for the small leftovers from Project Cherry. I gifted a commemorative CD set to a friend and wanted to make a box for them. I designed this clamshell cherry box with a hinged lid and discrete magnets to hold it closed. This was a challenging project as my planer thicknesser had given up the ghost, and my reliance on power tools had left me with a pile of unrestored hand planes and new hand planes that were never set up to be serviceable. It was therefore quite a challenging piece, but I’m really proud of the result.
