Another of my designs, this one is for my daughter Rachel. No special occasion…I just love her a lot.
This box is Maple with Bloodwood. I went pretty extreme on the shaping with the grinder and lost 3 boxes to get this one. The problem is, as you round the top over and flow it down into the sides, the joinery needs to be perfect or you get gaps.The miters need to be very crisp or as you grind into them the flaws will show. NO putty allowed :-) Also the edge becomes weak, especially around the hinge pins.
This box is a beauty to hold, and run your hands over.
