Default Another box book version

Almost finished the book project, its way toooo cold outside to spray on my usual Deft lacquer finish, and I don't spray in the shop or house. It has been rubbed with mineral oil/bees wax for now.
Pattern by Kim Braa found in issue 53 SSWC magazine. Thank you Kim for a fun pattern. Made two draws instead of the lid because my hinge installations leave something to be desired. Have not attached the top box yet, may do so, may not as my sister said it leaves for more options when decorating. Her call, it will eventually be hers anyhow.

Lovely job, Gloria, and your variation does allow for different options, which is nice.

Your sister is a lucky gal. I'm sure this will be a much appreciated and special gift.

BTW, years ago I saw a stack of books box in a fancy crafts store in VT, and the maker used invisible barrel hinges (the larger kind, not the ones I used for the little ring boxes) they worked really well, and might be something you could play with the next time around. They seem to be pretty secure, and not difficult to install. Of course I never used them, or the drill bits I bought to fit, but there's always another day . . . .

Looks great. I think the rubbed finish makes them looked aged. I think Deft might have been a little too "new" looking.

I think you chose the right finish. A couple of the books look like they are aged leather.
Beautiful work.
