Great work Tommy, mind me asking what jig whether diy or procured for making your box joints? I really prefer box-joints over doves, just taste I guess. I’ve build my own jig for the tablesaw, ditched it for one I built for the router table, both worked pretty good. I’ve been contemplating the INCRA I-BOX & also the INCRA HingeCrafter (later unrelated, just cool idea of wooden hinges). Of all the box-joint jigs I’ve seen, incra seems to have a nicer setup according to the reviews.

Beautiful boxes – well done! Number three, to my eye, is the most harmonious in colors and design. The corners of a darker woods is very unusually done. The inlay in the center drawer is a nice touch too. Would like to know more about how this one was created. Thanks for posting!

the box joints were made with a simple home made jig that i copied from the internet.
with the third box i built the box in one unit then i routed a rebate on each corner of the box then just inlayed some tasmanian oak strips in the rebate with some walnut strips i had from a model boat that i had left over sanded everything flat then cut the lid of using the router.the box was maded from white ash.
