Been experimenting with different decorative miniature boxes for the last year or so. Here are some of the results. I try to vary the woods for contrast and design.

Looking good! Great color selections on all. Have you thought of (or have the tools available) to thin down the stock on the walls of the box? I have been considering this on some of my projects but have yet to try it.

Walnut Weasel, the sides are about 1/4 in thick. I didn’t think to put in the dimensions. They are roughly 5” long by 2.5” wide by about 1.75” tall. Not sure I could get it much thinner, but maybe could try.

Those are very nice work, Kevin!! The smaller they get, I find, the more challenging they can be, and you’ve done a great job with all of these!! If I had to pick a favorite, it would be tough, but I think I would pick the one in the third picture… I like the spalted Oak(?) in the lid. Again, Great Job, my Friend!!!

Wow Kevin these are TINY. The detail of the photos shows such a high level of craftsmanship that I thought the boxes were much larger than they are. Good job man. Would you consider posting one more photo with a reference object next to one of your boxes? Maybe put a quarter next to one of them?
