As many before me I produced a box inspired by Andy.
This is for a friend’s wedding. “Two Hearts Joined together” Made from Ash and Purple Heart

Those double dove tails are AWESOME! Combined with the contour of the “Andy style” box puts it over the top! Great Job!!

Great looking box and excellent choice of wood combinations. Your friends will most certainly be excited to get this present. The dovetails look very nice. Did you make those with the Incra setup? I bought the incra touter table fence but haven’t played around with the double ddovetails yet.

Benham, you built a great box. The double heart inlay, the waves and double dovetails all require great talent.

Andy is a fellow Lumberjock who made an “Art Box” It has inspired many including myself to make our version of his art box. You can follow the link in the above post to Andy’s page

Wow! Now that took guts. You put a lot of work into those dovetails and started grinding away, knowing you could ruin all your hard work.
Very well done, and I know this will be a big hit when its unveiled.
Well done!
