Made this set of boxes for a friend that wanted give each of his six kids a box for Christmas but said whatever I wanted to make would be fine .
To keep things a little easier for me I made all the boxes the same but varied the lid design and used deep brown and deep green liners so he has some decisions to make as to who gets which one .HA HA !
The boxes are oak with walnut trim ,solid brass hinges and brown and green liners for the bottom and tray .
The size is roughly 10 1/2”W x 6 1/2 D” x 4 1/4” H with an oil and wax finish .
Shop time for all six adds up to about sixty hours which surprised me as it takes normally about sixteen plus to make one box like this but then the new jig I made to cut the pyramid pattern sure made a big difference .
I will post the jig separately once I take some pictures .
Here is another jig that helped greatly with the glue up of each box .
And another sanding device that no wood worker should be without .
Now it’s back to the shop to build the other gifts and the list is still pretty long I think Santa has it in for me this year or the other Elf’s are slacking off.
