This Christmas box (1 of 6 this year) accompanied a shiny gift for my wife. It’s made out of curly maple and paduak (maple hinges), and finished with tung oil. I personally like the sharp contrast of the maple and paduak, particularly with the through dovetails. Normally I round over the corners of the dovetails to smooth the lines and elongate the joinery. Even though the softer bullnose edges of the top clash with the sharp 90-degree corners of the box, I’m relatively pleased with how it turned out. Thanks for looking.
