A niece’s wedding overseas prompted the making of these boxes. It also seemed like a good place to put an envelope. Her new husband, concerned about having to fill it, commented that this was probably the most costly (to him) gift they had received : )) While I was at it, a great niece got one too.
Every project has its own challenges. This was my first crack at compound miters. Once the outside box has them, the inside boxes need them too. The first box has sides of solid Maple, legs of Bubinga, a handle of Birdseye Maple and a top of veneered Quilted Maple. The second box has sides of solid Maple, Cherry legs, and a handle and top of highly figured Birdseye Maple.
