Finished just in time for our 49th anniversary, this little box is heavy, being made from .75” oak.
All the carving except the feet was done on the CarveWright machine.
The inpainting is with acrylic paint and clear coat.
As observed by a friend, it will only take a couple of thousand to fill it with jewelry!

Good show, Don. Makes me think about buying one of those carving machine things, but I just don’t have the room.

Working this weekend, so not much shop time. If it would quiet down (two in labor right now), I might get some work done on my project table.

Great work Don! Your wife must be pleased. And it only took 49 years to get it!

Very nice! With the carving, it looks like a box from back in the 16th or 17th century, only much better.
