I had one board of Quilted Spalded Maple and a Curly Maple board, so I threw a piece of Lace and made this box.
The top border I’d made with Birdseye Maple.
The camera I have sucks but you can get an idea.
It looks like a run on the front tendon, but it is a small knot.
First Blind Dovetail, which I thought turned out good.
Sealer and two coats of Lacqure for the finish.
Lined bottoms with Pig Suede.
Thanks for looking.

Thanks drew.
I found them a little tougher than the through dovetails. Challenges
