This box was a commissioned piece for a friend at work who needed something to put her sewing cutters and scissors in. I surprised her with the pin cushion which I made from a scrap. It is made with Lacewood and Purple heart splines to reinforce the joints.

-- Happy woodworking!

Outstanding box. The splines are a real nice accent.

My wife the textile queen needs one of these. Nice work, and really dandy-looking piece of Lacewood you used. I have never seen vertical splines like that, which are a very nice touch. What sort of finish did you use?

Very nice indeed! I’m a big fan of using splines!

I really like your design and execution. I think I’m going to have to make a couple of these.

Beautiful work! I love the color contrast between the wood and the blue cloth. It looks very rich.
