A sewing box for my wife’s birthday. Her mother has one like it that always intrigued me, even before I ever really thought about woodworking. I used photos of that one as a model for mine. The boxes are made of maple, bottoms and tops are baltic birch ply, and all the rest is walnut. Finished with enduro-var. Several firsts for me: box joints, resawing, and making something with moving parts. In all it seems to work pretty well…a Christmas miracle, perhaps?
-- I cut it three times and it's STILL too short!
