These boxes are for my wife’s co-workers. They are pencil boxs that are made from Black Lima and Walnut. I used the Incra template system with my router table. I have the Incra Masterlift with a porter-cable 3 1/4 hp router. these boxes use the double double boxjoint and they are finished with laquer and the nameplates are a piece of black malinine glued to maple and then cnc routed names. The side of the maple is then stained to match the limba. This way the name really jumps out.

Hope everybody is having a very Merry Christmas!
