Hello LJ’s, here a exercise in bevel cuts galore. I recently complete the exterior of these bevel beauty. The wood used are Bird Eye Maple and Black Walnut. The design come from Wood Mag. book” Designing Great Boxes”. I improvised on two of the three designs just add my own touch but the basic design is from the book. I would highly recommend this book if anyone is interested in making a wide variety of boxes. The smaller of the three boxes were my test cuts which turn out to be a added box in the end. The finish on the small one is Danish oil with a Bri Wax coating. The larger jewelry boxes were finished with Danish Oil and a French Polish Shellac. Thanks for viewing…BC

BC those boxes and tops are spectacular! love it. the accent wood also works real well, adds a lot, but does not overpower the piece.

Very nice pieces, BC.

Aesthetic and original design, great contrast in the wood selection, shows off the birdseye, excellent joinery.

Excellent.

Excellent collection of boxes and great idea, bevelled sides. I’ll have to try that sometime.
