These boxes are Christmas presents. Keep it a secret! The first one is made of cherry, walnut, and maple. The third photo shows a similar box made of mahogany, walnut, and maple. I currently am working on another one made of purple heart, mahogany, and maple. Boxes finished with BLO and satin lacquer. The boxes are approximately 13×10x4 inches and basically follow the design, but not the identical construction procedure, given in an issue of Woodsmith magazine earlier this year (v.32, No. 190). At the conclusion of the Woodsmith article it is said that that completing these boxes is “an exercise in patience”. That is the understatement of the year.
