I made this keep sake box for my grand daughter who is 14 months old. This was my first attempt at Bird Mouth Joinery. I was able to purchase the bits at the online store that starts with an “A”.
I made this with aromatic cedar and Grey elm. The box is 14×13 x 6 and the letters are glued on.
I had a hard time with the hinges, had to drill the holes to attach the lid 3 times. If anyone know a sure fire way to get hinges right the first time I would love to hear how.
For some reason when I uploaded the interior picture it turned it sideways and I don’t know how to correct this.
Thanks to all of you who post projects as I enjoy seeing what other are doing. I try some of them so I can get out of my comfort zone.
