My mom’s birthday is in a few days and I made her one of Andy’s style palm box (Thanks Andy for a great tutorial) made out of maple and walnut. I also made her a purse mirror out of zebrawood, 3 inch diameter mirror. Both were fun projects. Both are finished with a shellac finish.

I have 4 other Andy’s boxes in the making … They are simple and addicting. I have seen many great versions of this little box on here and they all look good.

Thanks

I especially like the contrasting waves through the maple lid. Very nicely done, Mike. What kind of hinge did you use?
