I suspect that most veterans to this site have seen versions of this box. It represents my first foray into small box building. Hats off to Brad from Fix This Build That. This was a perfect project to learn precision bevel joints for these small boxes. Brad’s video and web instructions were clear and informative.

Box on the left is hard maple and walnut. Box on the right is angelique and hard maple. The Angelique piece, an exotic similar to teak, was a Woodcraft sale item …so I figured, why not. It’s hard and heavy; I don’t think i’ll use it again for things like this.

The maple/walnut box is finished in shellac. I putzed and futzed with Watco Danish oil on the angelique/maple box. That wood combination just didn’t like Watco.

Very nice. Love the contrasting colors. Box making can be so addictive.

Nice boxes. I too was reviewing the same website, and have just started my first two boxes. Thanks for the info and inspiration.
