I made this curly maple/cherry dovetailed box for my girlfriend on her 40th birthday.
Hand cut joinery. Raised panel top. Brusso quadrant hinges. Wipe-on poly finish.

Pretty fun little build.
Thanks for looking.

Great Dovetails! I kinda like the interior of the Lid more than the exterior, think I would’ve reversed it?

Very well done Ben,

I only hope your work is appreciated as much as us.
A very well presented post as well.

I looked inside but did not see a little band of gold anywhere!!
