Not much different from the last few I have made…just some different woods…but they seem to sell and therefore I am stocking up and creating for my upcoming shows.
This one is Bubinga and Maple.

Great workmanship as usual. Do you like this piece as much as others you’ve made?

Tom, I like all the boxes i make but, sure, I like do some better than others. Sometimes the wood type and combinations make a big difference and sometime it is the carving design…and when both come together…well, it works. The most fun is the entire process of making the box from start to finish while watching each step take shape. Then I look forward to the next one. Like the old saying goes “it’s the journey…not the destination”.

Thanks Dick,
the hinges are very easy to make since I use the Incra hinge crafter and the Incra box jig. I like the box joint jig because it allows for a lot of adjustments for different size knuckles and adjustment of fit. The box joint jig a made prior to buying the Incra would make a tight fitting joint that was good for box joints …but too tight for hinges.

I use contact cement to glue it to the wood bottom. works very good.
I glue it to the bottom prior to gluing the box together. That keeps and glue from getting on any of the box sides.

I look forward to seeing your creations Doc.
A downdraft table is definitely a useful accessory. I would suggest making it adjustable…similar to a drafting table.

the proportions do not seem to work for me
I Like the craftmanship but feel they are too boxy?
IMHO
Check out Andy’s box tutorial..

Thanks for the suggestion. I’m looking at winter in MN and sanding different pieces. I also seem to be loosing shop space every time I make a new shop aide? Made it to sit on the woodworking bench , but where to store it when not in use? LOL!
