Two more beveled style boxes in a recent run of five boxes, inspired by J.Schulz. First box made from Curly Maple and Mahogany and the 2nd from Cherry and Paduak. The lid is pin with a 1/8 brass rod and cap with a 1/8 dowel. Thanks for view….Blkcherry

I must admit to having a soft heart for curly maple in boxes. If you can get right prices together the effect is wonderful. These look q unite nice.

What is your finish going to be?

Thanks Arlin and Jim for the kind words, box making is woodworking fun.

Betsy the finish used is a coat of Danish Oil, and a French polish followed by a coat of Myland wax. Thanks for viewing and commenting…BC

BC, you have this bevel technique down!! Nice combinations of woods. Are you using 1 1/2” stock to get that pronounced angle?

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

Great looking boxes, BC. If I inspired you, I am humbled. I think you have taken the technique and blazed a new trail. The maple is especially beautiful and plays well with the mahogany. Way to go!
