I have been making this box design for about 12 years. A lot of you will recognize the tool used as the INCRA JIG for the double-double dovetail corners. The corners take about three days alone to finish. I fully assemble the box and then cut it open on the table saw. An 1/8 of an inch in the dovetail joint has to be added where the cut is to be made. The top floats in the sides like a raised panel for expansion. The dividers can be removed for cleaning, or rearanged sum what for convenience. There is a tray with dividers that are glued in place. The ladies like to pick up the tray by the dividers. The box has a 6 coat spayed on lacquer finish. The grain shows and it is not mirror like. This is the finish I prefer. I am very proud of the fact that INCRA has posted this box in their photo gallery on there site. The woods used are Mahogany, Peruvian Walnut, and Maple.
