This was a Christmas gift for my wife, who loves oriental architecture. The lid was made with a cove cut (3rd pic shows the tablesaw setup.) This is a nerve-wracking thing to do on a tablesaw, and generates an unbelievable amount of sawdust, but all went well. I’d made some molding once before with this trick, and learned the hard way to take small bites, raising the blade ever so slightly with each pass. I used Sketchup as usual, which was most helpful in determining the cove depth. Glueup was a bit tricky; lots of tape. Hopefully a dress rehearsal for a larger jewelry box. Cherry, with shellac finish.
