This was a commissioned piece for my Boss’ wife. I traded for tools at the used tool store I work at. The tray lifts out or slides back and forth. The two rows with slots are for hanging earrings. It is Fiddleback Maple and Cherry with box joints made with my new (first try) Incra router table fence. It is lined with soft suede.

Nice. I like the look of the suede (and the box overall).

Very cool, it appears your box joint jig does something mine doesn’t, or at least something i don’t know how to do. The spacing…I like it.

The box joint was made with my new Incra router table fence. I plan to start a blog on the Incra system because since I have discovered it I am in love. It is the best addition to my shop since walls and a ceiling. I used to be such a snob about the Incra stuff. I would see it at woodworking shows and turn my nose up. It seemed unnecessarily fancy. But I have been converted, I am sorry to say.

Love the box. Really a bunch! I am solidly in the Incra fence camp. Once you figure out how to index to the bit edge and center there is nothing like the precision and versatility it provide. I want to welcome you here. I can tell you will be showing some gorgeous work here.

This beaut was posted almost 24 hours ago and no comment from Don? Has anybody checked to see if he’s ok? Really terrific piece Blake. Just beautiful.

I’m sorry I missed this one the first time by. This is quite an elegant looking box, Blake. Nice job.

Thanks,
This was the first project I posted but it is actually my most recent “full-sized” (for me) project. I have been posting other older projects and jigs. I have more of this wood and now that my new router table is completed I plan to make another one of these.

Missed it before Blake. A great job. I’ve got an Incra but I use it mostly for a fence on my router and table saw.
