I’m having a lot of fun digging through old pictures to post up some of the things I’ve made!
This is a Peruvian Walnut and Birdseye Maple keepsake box I built for Wifey as a Fifth Anniversary present. interestingly (at least to me) I had bought the piece of Birdseye the previous year while was constructing her tack box for the 4th anniversary and it took me over a year to get around to using it for something.
Simple splined miter construction with a grooved inset for the top and base. Both maple panels are milled from the same piece using my table saw (yikes!) as I don’t yet have a bandsaw. Hardware is from “Woodcraft” store. Feet are cut from scraps of walnut. Finish is a satin wipe-on poly.
Wifey seemed to like it, so I must have done OK…
