Her name is Marie, she’s a big Magic Fan so for her birthday last year I made here that little box. The intent was to have the legs shaped as “M”, one side for Marie and one for Magic. I guess you need some imagination…

I enjoyed building the box (first hand cut dovetails) but the lid was really the funny part. It was my first attempt of inlay and I could have done a worst job :)

Feet and top are Cherry, basketball is curly maple and the sides are pine.
Finish is shellac and lacquer : I had to deliver the piece ~20 minutes after the shellac was dry so I used lacquer!

Thanks for watching

Nothing to be ashamed of here for a first effort at both hand cut dovetails and inlay! Nice box!

I never met a box I didn’t like Pierre, especially ones with hand cut dovetails and inlay. I can see the M and my wife can attest to my lack of immagination. Good job.
