I made this box for a wedding gift to my soon to be husband. This was my first attempt at hand sawn and chiseled dovetail joints. I definitely have even more respect for the woodworking veterans who can cut these so quickly with such accuracy…very difficult, indeed. Wood is maple. Wood burned a series of Game of Thrones symbols after using tracing paper to transfer the image to the wood. Finished with a red chestnut stain. Lined inside with black velvet.

Looks awesome. Great job, Frittsmhm.

I would love to see the inside (especially if it reads “Not Today” in the box).

I can’t believe I forgot a picture of the inside; I just added one. It does say “Not Today”! And thank you!

Have your say...
