These are some stationery boxes I made for Christmas presents this year. The design is by Doug Stowe and was challenging in many aspects. Finger joint construction however the top fingers had to be mitered to show off the ribbon veneer highlight. First time I made my own veneer trim. Two are made from figured Walnut, one from Birdseye Maple (Walnut top panel), and the last from Wenge. I lined them with suede and turned a nice fountain pen for each. I actually started 6 boxes but had to cut back due to running out of time (ever happen to anyone else?). So, I still have two mostly complete (birthdays maybe).
They were a lot of fun to make.
Thanks for looking.
