These were Christmas gifts I made for my sisters a couple of years back. I just never got around to posting them until now. The boxes are Curly maple, with Redwood burl veneer on the tops, and redwood for the dovetail splines on the corners. This was very fun to make. It was a challenge for me, but I was happy with how they turned out. I resawed the curly maple for from some thick stock. I also matched the veneer on the inside and the outside to make it look like a solid piece of wood. The finish is BLO topped with Shellac. The first time I had ever used either of those. Every detail of this build was a first for me.
If you have any questions or comments, please ask. I would like to share anything about this, as this is one of the favorite projects I have ever done.
