Now that the shop refurbish is done it is time to get back into makin’ things. This is my first effort at making a box, in this case a jewelry box for the ‘main squeeze’s 24th anniversary.
Box is rosewood and the dividers/hinges are padoo. First attempt at making my own wooden hinges was a lot of trial and mostly error but eventually got something functional.
The hearts were originally mounted on the top but that got rejected by the boss and we came up with a side mount which is a bit different. Joints were mitered and Dowelmax’d. Finish is Minwax wipe on.
Happy Anniversary Honey.
