A New Antique Shaving Box
#1
I saw a box like this in my search on the Internet. It is an antique design that I have copied. I used an old rough sawn cedar board to make the pieces. The first day, I made the box part of the box. Today, I worked on the lid, splitting it, hinging it, making and attaching the feet, and making and attaching the mirror. I still have to outfit it, but I intend to do an outside shave with it soon.
