I finally finished a keepsake box for niece. This was my first try at different building techniques. The box is made out of Red Cedar and Hard Maple. All of the lumber was rough sawn so I learned how to plan and joint all of the pieces to prep for glue up. I wanted to add a little more contrast to the box so I decided to add some Maple splines. That was a little difficult because I didn’t have a proper jig set up for cutting the splines in the box. After seeing how cool they looked on this box I will definitely have to build a spline jig before my next box project.
