A small walnut and oak box made from 1/4 inch red oak and walnut stock, box joint with skip pattern, Suede Tex, and cheap brass hardware. I had fun, so thought I’d share pictures. I recently made a new friend on a six week work project. She’s from out of town, so I’ll likely never see again. I gave her this box in appreciation.

Box making is addictive. I have several more under construction.

Beautiful work!
I like box making because it allows you to try out all kinds of different joinery techniques and build the skills required for other types of woodworking. Also people always appreciate them as gifts.
Great job!

I have always thought handmade gifts were the best. Great job.

I like that the box is clean and basic, can be used for most anything without thought. Joinery is top notch.
