Here are a couple of boxes i made for my daughters wedding. First box is all walnut. i finger jointed the corners with my incra i box which i love. This box was used for wedding cards on the gift table. The other box is walnut and some figured maple that i found mixed in with the regular maple at the big box store. I was experimenting with my ibox again and had to try making a top that was finger jointed and it turned out pretty cool. This box was used for a unity box and a bottle of wine and a bottle of pop along with a letter from both bride and groom. The box was locked and will be opened on their first wedding anniversary . Both boxes were a labor of love.

There is something about elegant simplicity that really appeals to me. They are beautiful boxes and sure to be noticed by all of the wedding guests, especially any that do wood working.

Nice. Never thought of finger joints for the lid. Good idea.
