I’ve done a few bandsaw boxes but this is the first mitered type box I’ve done. Design came from a book called “Making Great Boxes”. Still have to line the interior, but my navy blue flocking still hasn’t arrived.

It just goes to prove that you can fit a lot of design and joinery in a small project. Nicely done.

This is a really nice box- both in its design and wood combination. Maple and cherry are a personal favorite of mine.

Well done. I enjoyed seeing this piece.

I have a magazine collection titled “America’s Best-Ever Woodworking Projects & Shop Tips” that has that same design in it. I’m working on making the pieces to allow my daughters to do the assembly work as our next father/daughter project.

your’s looks fantastic.
