Those are gorgeous!! So are those mitered corners, with maple splines, and a rabbeted top? How about a pic of them opened? Great job, Damian!!

Beautiful boxes Damian. Great figure in the rosewood. Those maple splines really compliment the rosewood.

Love the color contrasts between the darker box and the lighter splines!

Doug Stowe’s article will have launched a thousand Xmas boxes this year (I’ve got one in the pipe, too). Love the rosewood…

Thanks guys :) You got it Matt, mitered and then splined with a rabbeted top, you can find the article here.
Unfortunately I was in quite a rush to get these out as I had to get them in the mail so these are the only shots I have of them. I do have one in birdseye maple that I’m working on too though so I’ll get some better pics of that one. The rosewood really is lovely though, first time I’d used it.

Very nice boxes. They allow the wood to speak for itself without distraction.

Nice job! I just read the article yesterday on making those. I think I will be taking a stab at this design also.

As always, a beautiful job.
I thought you were going to say you were in such a rush to mail them, they don’t actually open!

Hey Lee, I started using the bench before I’d completely finished it which is why these got posted first :) I still need to get the face vise attached, and once I’ve done that I’ll definitely be posting it.
