I’ve been lurking around LJ for a couple of years now but I never got round to uploading anything. The snow has had me trapped in the house for most of the week so I thought I’d put it to good use and finally add some thing to the community!This is a jewellery box I made for her indoors for Xmas.
Everything is unplugged apart from separating the top from the body of the box. I get carried away with making things overly strong so I had the idea of making alternating dovetails. Pins one side of the board, tails the other. When assembling I gently pushed in all the corners at the same time to make a mechanical lock. It’s very strong, but it looks odd. It feels like you should keep spinning it to find the front! I’d already started on a miterd tray with splines so I added some legs to cover them up
Thanks for looking
