Hey thanks for checking out my box project !! I made two boxes like this, one for the girl friend and one for her daughter with different saying on them. These are just quickie little gift boxes for Christmas, nothing fancy at all. For the pictures I used clear sticky back film that I ran through a ink jet printer then sprayed a couple coats of clear coat on them before applying them to the lids. The boxes are made from hard maple with a black stained edge to high light the edge profiles to give it a picture frame look. The inside is lined with black velvet.
Any comments would be nice.
Thanks for looking
Al

What super gifts I’m certain they will be a hit. The black border really does make the photo ‘pop’ right off the box at you. Very nicely done. How was the inside inscription done?

SO this is simple, could have fooled me. Guess that is the secret of an accomplished woodworker. Make it simple but look complex. Nicely done.

Hey thanks for the comments.
Northwest29 to answer your question, it was done the same as the picture on top of the lid. I made up a PDF file in “publisher” and printed it out on clear sticky back film and clear coated it with a couple of layers before sticking it to the bottom side of the lid. I hope these sticky labels hold up over time is what I worry about. It looks nice but over the long haul not to sure what affect it will have with the movement of the wood.

The lettering on the inside of the lid is a sticky back label that I ran through a ink jet printer.
