This is my first project post since joining Lumber Jocks. I have enjoyed watching the projects posted and reading many of the blogs. Due to some health issues I don’t spend near the time in the shop as I would like to in retirement. I have seen and enjoyed the Palm boxes that Andy has posted and they reminded of the boxes I was making some 15 to 20 years ago. I made these boxes in three different sizes the size shown being the small box.
The dimension of these small boxes is 1 -5/8” x 3-1/4” x 4-1/2”
These boxes are similiar to those that Andy is making now, as they are all but joints. I did nowever add 1/8” dowels to the joints just as an added protection from possible glue failure. The 1/8” brass rod hinge pin was covered with a dowel plug on the exterior of the box. Small strips of wood were added to the lid with the accent wood. I’ll post the other sizes I made of this type of box in another post.
At the time I made these boxes by the dozens and they sold quite well.

If anyone has questions regarding making these let me know.
