the first boxes are made of ambrosia maple and cherry accent. they ‘re all about 9in long 6 deep by 6 tall. I lined them with velvet. the lid lifts off. the last two boxes are made from character hickory. I mitered the corners and used splines made on the tablesaw. I used clear shellac for the finish. I scroll sawed the name out on the top layer of the lid then glue it to the accent layer. I glue the sides together then glue on the glued up top layer. then I cut shallow, 1/8 or less, grooves all around the box glue in the ribbon wood. then I sand it smooth on a belt sander. then I cut the lid off on either the table saw or band saw. then I cut a rabbit on the box and matching one on the lid. then glue the bow on. and finish
everyone loves these. I’ve been selling a bunch of them. I don’t think I charge enough. how much do you think I should sell them for?
