Like many Lumberjocks, my favourite things are boxes. This is my wife’s sewing box and it’s one of her favourite things. The Lacewood is, I believe, quarter sawn London Plane (Platanus x hispanica?). There appear to be other timbers with that same name. I used the Leigh jig for the dovetail joints.
The design is very strongly influenced by a box in one of those lovely Fine Woodworking Design books. Many thanks to whoever made that one.
