Finished these boxes to hold a deck of cards and playing dice. Used Purple-heart, Coco-bola, walnut, and Zericote. All use box joints for the sides and bottom made with the Incra wonder fence. Joints for these small boxes were first cut on the band saw and then the router. One box has a lift off lid held in place with strong craft magnets. The remainder have slide lids with a small thumb groove in the lid to allow ease of opening. The slide lids also have a craft magnet in the lids and front side to hold the box shot. Boxes were finished with water based poly and after curing rubbed with wax and 0000 steel wool and buffed out to a satin finish.

Nice! Really like that zericote, but they all are beautiful.
