DIL's blanket box

Newest Video! I love creating, here's what I'm up to!

I built this for the DIL ( Daughter in Law) for combined Christmas/Birthday present. Made entirely from recycled Rimu (NZ hard wood) that was at least 150 years old when milled, I wanted to preserve some of that history so some original sawmill marks are there in the top. Finished with Briwax (Rimu) wax & 4 coats of enamel satin poly. The main framing was from Rimu 4x4 posts that were very solid when trimming to actual needed size (40mm x 40mm). Used half lap joints, reinforce with screws.
