I am very slow to get going on computer, but I am getting the hang of it. These were for my sweety’s family, we were very rushed on these and she helped me alot. I had picked up a nice piece of eastern spalted beech and used it for the tops of 3 of the boxes. One is babingga and maple burl, the others are walnut bases. All w/ wooden hinges, lacquer finish, felt lined. Thanks

Very nice work. The wood choices and the construction look very good. The oval picture hole is perfect. Are the pictures removable? I am working on something similar for a person to keep family photos and display one on top. I would like to see what else you have made.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

Thanks for the kind words, that is what makes this site truely GREAT>>>>

a1Jim, I salute your dedeication to this site, thanks!! I have alot of routers but I counted and you still win!!!!

Robert, I have followed your progress on this site and lots of others and I have learned from each of you. Look at back lid in picture and i think you can see that glass, picture and backing go in from back and are held in with turn buttions. I have a oval form that I double face tape to the top of box and I use a short bearing router bit to cut the oval shape. Then I round over the top edge of the oval, then I turn box top over and square it out on my router table to receive the glass, picture and backing. When the box is assembled and finished Iinstall the turn buttions and a piece of mat board that goes with box color. I have given lots of these boxes away as gifts and we write on the mat board in the interior, best wishes, ect.

Hi Bob. These boxes are both beautiful and they are also a fantastic gift idea with the family photos included. My take for a title would be simply ‘PICTURE BOXES’. These would become really highly valued keepsakes in just about any family.
