In October, our local woodworking club hosted a class by Texas furnituremaker Frank Strazza. I put the last coat of finish on it late on Christmas eve, and gave it to my wife as a gift.
The class was to build a dovetailed jewelry box entirely by hand. I’m ashamed to say I have never cut dovetails by hand. In addition to the dovetails, the frame and panel lid was also made by hand – grooves, mortise and tenon, raised panel. The box is made from curly maple and walnut. The finish is shellac.
The last photo shows one of the ten Moxon twin screw vise I built for the club.
