One of the best things about boxes is that you can make multiples from the same set-up, and they all have their own unique character. This jewlery box is Cherry with a figuered Maple raised panel top. Accented by Cherry dovetail splines. The bottoms are lined with black velvet.

The finish is my typical hand-rubbed lacquer.

Thanks for looking!

That’s a nice looking box there Ken. I am going to have to work those dovetail keys into my corners. I have been thinking that next year I need to come up with something a little different. I have a few ideas and will add that one to it. I just have to figure out how it’s done. Dovetail boxes are one thing, but the keys are a little more to wrap my brain around. I am enjoying the mental exercise of trying to picture the best way to make the keys almost as much as I enjoy looking at you box.

Great Job

I agree with you on building multiple boxes. I always say it takes as much time to make one as it does to make 10. And not two are ever the same. The wood takes care of that part. That has been a major factor in the boxes I have been building for this Christmas season. I have a small amount of about 5-6 different woods and about 15 different boxes. Can’t wait to see your next one.

beautiful box Kent, nice complimentary grains and shades of colors and the finish looks very inviting to the touch.

was the lid finger slot made with a template or freehand?

Good looking box. There was one time I made 40 at the same time of the same box for a church project. I just finish doing 7 Andy style boxes. Six of them were walnut with the flame maple for the top. All of the tops were cut from the same board. The other was maple box with purpleheart top.

I really like the looks of the figured or as i call it flame maple.

Have a very Merry Christmas, my friend.
