Some time ago I made a spice box for my wife, this one is for our cousin in Indiana, I have changed this box by making 2 doors instead of one as it make it easier (I think) to access the spices, the box is made from reclaimed wood which I had from barns that were torn down, the drawers are hand dovetailed at the front and back and divided into 2 parts to store spices. The main box is dovetailed at the top and bottom, there is an inlay of lacewood around the front perimeter of the box. It is finished with varnish and 3 coats of wax inside and out.

Nice Spice Box … but it would be handy for a lot of other applications.

This is an excellent box! I like the wood and the design. The middle drawer fronts look like Lacewood. This is very close to the look of the Jewelry Chest I am making. Nice work.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

I really love the spice chests, they look like tiny armoires. I really like the double doors instead of the single one we mostly see. Great job.

Nice design and craftsmanship. And the wood will live another hundred years?
