Well, I’ve completed my 2nd box. It’s made from spalted cherry with a curly maple sliding lid. As you can see, I’ve got some work to do with tightening up the corner miters, but I’m on the road to success with that. I miscut the rabbet for the sliding lid (far edge in the photos) but I didn’t want to waste a piece of curly maple. I really like the way the knot in the front left corner “wraps around” the joint, and will do more of this in the future, once my miters are tightened up.
I originally designed/made this box for my wife, but during construction, we received into our lives a granddaughter, born 2 months early at a wedding in Cancun. Soooooo, I believe it’ll be hers. She’s doing well and the Children’s Healthcare folks in Atlanta are awesome! Baby Maddie certainly feels loved.
Thanks in advance for comments and suggestions!
