My darling bride (of 39.8 years) asked me to make her a tray to put on her dresser. She wanted a place to keep her everyday items (earrings, rings, watch, rosary, etc.) in. I came up with this box for her. The woods are Hickory and Paduck. I finished it with 2 coats of Minwax Wipe on Poly. This project included two firsts for me – the keyed miters and the divider. I think it came out alright, but not the perfect piece I wanted :-)). I’m working through Bob Stowe’s Basic Box Making book and video. I have pretty much finished making all of the jigs and sleds – now off to the shop to make some boxes that Don will like – Small Boxes.
