Hi, this is my last work. I have been making this box using only hand tools, for the lat week. It is made of oak (an old oak from the forest near by my home) and a bit of quarter sawn maple (for the side inlays), redwood and quarter sawn red cedar for the bottoms. The joinery is secret mitre dovetails for the oak and half blind dovetails for the oak and maple. Finished with shellac for the outside and just planing for the inside.
I hope you like it.
